While experimenting with my laptop and projector the other night, I was able

to see the slides in edit mode on my laptop while they presented on the

projector and advance with the slide shown on projector. But tonight the

slide displayed on the computer does not advance with the one projected. I

have Office 2003 Professional.

I know I can use Presenter view to have the slide displayed on the computer

advance with the one projected, but I want to be able to use ink and can't do

that while in Presenter view. If I could get it to work like it did the

other night I would be very grateful.

    • There are multiple settings you will need to check/adjust. Here is the

      quick version.

      1) In Windows

      Click on Start => Settings => Control Panel => Display => (tab) Settings

      On the second monitor miniature, right click and make sure that Attached is

      checked

      2) In PowerPoint

      Click on Slide Show => Set up Show.. => (section) Multiple Monitors =>

      Display Slideshow on ... Monitor 2

      Give it a whirl and see if that does what you want.
