Using PowerPoint in a Webinar
March 30, 2018 (published)
Peggy Hall

If you have only one monitor, you might prefer to use the PowerPoint Reading View (Windows) or Individual View (Mac) in place of running the Slideshow view as this will give you room to arrange your Zoom windows without completely covering the PowerPoint display.

  1. In the PowerPoint window, click on the View tab and select Reading View.
