OfficeOne ShowMouse

Microsoft PowerPoint hides mouse during slide shows. It displays the mouse pointer when it sees sufficiently large activity in mouse movements. Some people have asked for not hiding the mouse at all during slide shows. This is where ShowMouse comes in. ShowMouse, when turned ON, will keep the mouse displayed during slide shows.

Known Issues

  • Windows 95 systems. There is no workaround for this.
