Show slide show

The slide recording feature is similar to the Rehearse Timing feature , but a little more sophisticated. If you have a microphone on your computer, you can record your voice for the entire presentation. If you make a continuous movement of your slides or a video, it will be useful for your presentation. The mouse will not be displayed on the screen of the recorded slide, so if you want to specify the details on the screen, you can use the PowerPoint laser pointer option.

2. Click the slider at the bottom of the Record Slide Show to select start Recording from Beginning or start recording Recording from Current slide .
