If you are delivering a PowerPoint presentation over a network, you cannot use a traditional laser-pointer to bring your audience's attention to specific areas of your presentation. However, you no longer need a physical pointing device - PowerPoint provides its own laser-pointer that you can activate with a simple shortcut key.
To Use The Laser Pointer in PowerPoint
- Start your PowerPoint presentation
- Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click the left mouse button. Your cursor transforms to a colored laser-pointer that moves with your mouse and will appear as long as you keep the Ctrl key held down.
- To navigate to the next slide, release the Ctrl key and mouse button.
That's it - instant laser-pointer!
