Hide the pointer during a slide show

  • Click or tap the pointer arrow on the Slide show toolbar, point to Arrow Options, and then click or tap Hidden.

 Note   If you choose the Automatic option, the pointer is hidden after three seconds of no movement. The pointer appears again when you move the mouse.


After you hide the pointer, it remains hidden until you choose one of the other commands on the Pointer Options submenu (submenu: A menu that appears when a user points to a command on a higher-level menu.) or you exit the presentation.
