Using Presenter View is a great way to view your presentation with speaker notes on one computer (your laptop, for example), while your audience views the notes-free presentation on a different monitor (like a larger screen you’re projecting to).
Note: Make sure the device you’re using for your presentation supports the use of multiple monitors. Check with your manufacturer for up-to-date information about multiple monitor support.
Set up PowerPoint to use Presenter view with two monitors
On the Slide Show tab, in the Monitors group, select Use Presenter View.
Windows Display Settings should open.
In the Display Settings dialog box, on the Monitor tab, select the monitor icon that you want to use to view your speaker notes, and then select the This is my main monitor check box.
If the This is my main monitor check box is selected and unavailable, the monitor is already designated as the primary monitor.
Select the monitor icon for the second monitor that the audience will view, and then check the Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor check box.
Notes: If the display settings don’t open, do the following:
Windows 10: Click Start > Settings > System > Display. Select Make this my main display for the monitor on which you’ll view your speaker notes.
