View PowerPoint slides in a smaller window
Sometimes you might want to display your presentation in Slide Show view in a way that doesn’t take up the entire screen. For example, let’s say that you are delivering a presentation and want to switch between applications. (You can press Alt + Tab, but that’s a little clunky and if you have many applications open, it can get confusing.)
There’s an easy way to accomplish this:
1. In PowerPoint 2007 and 2010, click the Slide Show tab and choose Set Up Slide Show. In PowerPoint 2003, choose Slide Show> Set Up Show.
2. In the Set Up Show dialog box, in the Show Type section, choose Browsed by an Individual (Window).
