Display different slides from same presentation on different monitors
PowerShow can be configured to display different slides from the same presentation on different monitors. For example,
  1. Slide 1 is displayed on monitor 1 while slide 2 is displayed on monitor 2
  2. Slide 2 is then displayed on monitor 1 while slide 3 gets displayed on monitor 2 and so on.
Assuming that the presentation does not have animations or transitions, the steps are as follows:
  1. Assume that we have a presentation named Right.pptx. We create a duplicate of this presentation and call it Left.pptx:
    1. Open Right.pptx in Microsoft PowerPoint.
    2. Save the presentation as Left.pptx.
    3. Open Left.pptx as well as Right.pptx in Microsoft PowerPoint.
  2. In Left.pptx, insert a new blank slide at the beginning of the presentation.
  3. Setup Right.pptx to follow Left.ppt as follows:
    1. Select Slide Show | Prepare Sync Show item.
    2. Select Left.pptx as the Master presentation and place a check against Right.pptx as the Follower presentation: Prepare Sync Show
    3. Click OK button.
  4. Select Slide Show | Power Show item.
  5. On the Presentations tab, set up the configuration as follows:
    1. Select your Left.pptx <Slide Show> in the first row and 1 monitor.
    2. Select your Right.pptx <Slide Show> in the second row and 1 monitor.
  6. Click Start Show button.
