I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In Powerpoint 2003 you can choose to not have the really lame black slide at the end of your show that says "End of Show, click to Exit".

However, when you play your show using the Powerpoint Viewer 2003 the "End of Show" slide still pops up.

Anyone know how to get rid of it, or write a macro that auto ends the show before the slide has a chance to play?
 

A:Powerpoint - End of Show slide

why don't you just include your own slide at the end of the show, either blank, or with a picture on it, that serves as a reminder to the speaker that it's the end of that presentation. As long as there's no timed transition on that slide it will just sit there indefinitely. I run enormous slide shows for international conferences and I just insert what we call a 'holding slide' at the very front, inbetween individual presentations, and at the end. It's usually a logo of the product/project of the meeting, photoshop'd on a nice textured background.

I recently made a PowerPoint slide show for my sons wedding reception and burned it to a DVD. When I played it in my DVD player, all I got was the music on the TV with no video. How can I view the slide show on my TV and get both audio and video?
 

A:PowerPoint slide show

Hmmmmm...not too sure, but I know there is software out there that can help.
You see. This is what I found out:
.."With some compromise in quality, distribute presentation videos on a DVD that you can playback on a PC as well as on a standard DVD player. Typically, the display resolution of a PC is 800 x 600 pixels, 1024 x 768 pixels or higher. On the other hand, a standard DVD video has 720 x 480 pixels (NTSC) or 720 x 576 pixels (PAL) resolution. Hence, when making presentation videos, Video Edit Magic will resize a video at 800 x 600 pixels (or 1024 x 768 pixels) to 720 x 480 pixels (or 720 x 576 pixels). As expected, you will experience an inherent loss in video quality. The important thing to notice here is that Video Edit Magic resizes a 1024 x 768 pixels screen video to a 720 x 480 pixels for DVD. You will loose more video quality than when you resize an 800 x 600 pixels video to 720 x 480 pixels. For the least loss in quality, make sure that you keep your display resolution to 800 x 600 pixels or lower when My Screen Recorder is recording your PowerPoint presentation. A standard VCD video is 320 x 240 pixels (NTSC) or 352 x 288 pixels (PAL). In this case, the resizing involved is so high that you will almost loose the entire video quality. Hence, it is not advisable to distribute screen recordings on a VCD. " Burned PP slideshow on a DVD for a friend for her birthday and didn't look great at all. Well just something to look into.

I am running Office 365 in Windows 10.  When creating a PowerPoint presentation everything looks fine in the Normal View. However, when I put it into Slide Show View the text is distorted, with the original text duplicated but turned through 90 degrees. 
If I put this presentation onto a PC running PowerPoint 2016, and not running Windows 10 there is no problem and Slide Show view works perfectly.
I have just spent an hour+ with MS Office Support and all they could do was uninstall and reinstall Office 365.  The problem was not solved.  They then told me to contact you!  Not a very impressive support response!

Question:

what I want to know is how to navigate to any slide during a slide show presentation without showing on the projector but only on my laptop screen. What short cut or technique?
In another words, the audiences can only see the current slide while I am trying to navigate the slide without the audiences see what I am doing on the display to the projector. I hope this is a clear question if not,

Has anyone tried viewing Microsoft Powerpoint Slide Show using two screen? I had tried connect the two laptop COM 1 port but still cannot. Anyone know why?
 

A:View Microsoft Powerpoint Slide Show on Two Screen

The best chance that you might have would be to go to www.microsoft.com/powerpoint, find, download and install the free "Powerpoint Viewer." Open the presentation once on one display, then click once on the presentation file (.ppt), hold down the Shift key, right-click on the file again, choose "Open With..." and find the Powerpoint Viewer application to use. That way you'll actually be using two separate programs to open the file, lending two separate displays.

I am a Special Education Para pro who is designing a Power point to train students with autism how to communicate with others appropriately. My Power point has embedded audio that plays while they see a picture of someone they know greeting them. I also have audio that plays when they click on the answer to a question asking the appropriate response. What I am wanting to do is this:

1. have the students record an audio response (during slide show) to the audio they hear
2. save audio file to play back later in slide show
3. play back the audio recordings made during the slide show in order with the embedded audio I insert

The purpose of the Powerpoint is to create a conversation simulator of sorts where the student can record their own voice in response to embedded audio I created in the slide show. At the end of a couple of slides they would hear the audio I embedded as well as their portion of the conversation they recorded as they watched the slide show.

Is this possible and how can I do it.

PowerPoint lets you embed OLE objects like and excel spreadsheet in your PowerPoint Presentation where the DATA resides in the external spreadsheet.

On such a link you can right click to refresh, and also set it to "automatically" update - which really means that when you load the presentation next time, it will prompt you asking if you'd like to refresh it.

But when you run the presentation as a slide show with the file extention .pps, it does not prompt you or update the embedded links with changes in the external files.

You can invoke a method from a VB routine or script that will do this if the script is executed:

ActivePresentation.UpdateLinks

but I can't get the script to run except by attaching it to a control that you must execute manually (with the mouse during presentation). When the slide show loads unattended and there is no one there to press a control on one of the slides.

So I think my obstacles are one of the following:

How can I get the external links in the presentation to refresh automatically (during the show or upon loading)?, OR

How can I invoke a VB sub or script to execute in an unattended presentation?

Thanks

How can I show the bars so that they don't look so disproportionate?

It would be the same slide throughout, but when you feel like pausing you can call it up instead.

Thanks for helping
 

A:Powerpoint slide question

Hi there, welcome to TSG.

I haven't done much VBA coding with PowerPoint, but my first thought is to write a global event handler for the pause event. I don't even know if you can write a global event handler in VBA. If you can, it would probably be a standard module with something like a Public Sub OnPause() (but I'm sort of making that up because I don't know the actual code). And in that sub you'd display your slide. You'd have to figure out a way to unload the slide on unpause.

I'm really just trying to generate some ideas here, since I don't know any better.

Is there a way i can copy all my master slides that i accidently completed into slide view because i do not wish to type all the information again.

A:Powerpoint - Made Slides in Master Slide

PC Doctor
I could be wrong, but basically you are applying formats etc in master view and not what you type.
Consequently whatever you have typed will not transfer to normal view slides, only the styles, formats etc.

However, what you could do, is to go into each master one by one and select the text that you have typed and copy. Then go back to normal view and paste the data into your slide.

Whilst in that slide, click on the Format menu and select Slide Design....

You should see the slide design panel appear on the right hand side of you screen.

You should be able to find the slide that you want to use (Whatever name you have given it) - you just click on it and the format is applied to your current slide.

You then do this for every other master slide you have created, by repeating the instructions above.

I know it will take some time, but at least you copy and paste your text, and then apply your formats. Better than trying to do it from scratch.

Anybody got a better idea?

Hello ,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate with all updates to date installed. Microsoft Security Essentials in the Antivirus.

The machine is HP DV-5 / Nvidia GForce 9200M GS / 4Gb RAM.

My PowerPoint version is as follows:

I have received a presentation from my colleague with an image inserted on a slide. (it is inserted/saved , not linked to). This maybe created originally in PowerPoint 2007 but saved in PowerPoint 2003 format from the default menu option (.ppt). Below is the original slide image which should be shown the same way on my laptop.

However due to unknown reasons it is displayed like this with a blue box instead of image.

I can be considered as a power user, and have checked various options however cant seem to find out what is the reason. I dont think disabling hardware graphics accelerations can be a reason, cause it doesn't seem to work for most of the people, however it is touted as the first support option.

Any further ideas and suggestion to tackle the problem are appreciated and welcome.

A:Powerpoint 2003: Slide does not display embedded image

Hi,
we just encountered the very same issue: a ppt in 2003 format converted from a native 2007 ppt shows the images as greyish boxes. No matter what we tried in PP2003 did solve the issue.

We resorted to copy each image in PP2007 and paste it back using "paste as jpg"; the resulting file saved in 2003 format shows the images correctly in PP2003.

This could hints that the image format is the culprit; possibly the original images where png with an alpha level.

Since we never encountered it before (and also on the net we found just this very thread about it), we also suppose that this issue could be rather recent, possibly introduced as an unwanted side effect of a Microsoft Update.

Hope it helps!

Regards,
Marco
