Dear PC Doctor:

I give presentations and I switch back and forth between mac and PC environments. On my mac, in the photos program, it’s easy to set a slide show to repeat, or loop, without stopping. I haven’t figured out how to do that in Powerpoint. Can you help?



Dear Richard:


First, create your Powerpoint slide show. Then, click on the tab labeled “Slide Show.” Choose “Set Up Slide Show.” In the box labeled “Show Options,” check the box next to “loop continuously until ‘Esc’.” Click “OK.” Be sure to also click on the “Animations” tab and choose Advance Slide Automatically” (and choose the number of seconds). Save before trying to view your show.

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy Computing!
