Temporarily black out the screen during a presentation

To do this, you must be running the show on more than one monitor and select to use presenter view during the slide show.

  • In presenter view, click Black Screen.

This turns the audience's monitor black, but maintains the presenter view on the primary monitor. The slide area in presenter view is black to reflect the audience's view.

 Note   To resume the slide show, click Resume Show.
