Presentation Mode:
The Ultimate Guide to Professional Presentation

After thorough planning and doing all the research for weeks, it was time for the presentation. The effort you put into your work needs to appear in how you present it to the audience. You want to connect with your audience beautifully and simply.

Luckily, you can achieve all this by use of presentation mode. It helps present notes, whether in a large group or viewing by small teams. Here is how you can open presentation mode and use it for both Mac and Windows devices.

What is presentation mode?

Presentation mode is a feature for users who demand uninterrupted usage of their software. It helps to eliminate any disturbing pop-up windows, minimize CPU usage, and avoid any interruption due to antivirus activity.

Once you enable the presentation mode, all other pop-up windows get disabled automatically, and the scheduled tasks don't run within the system.

Also, the computer stays awake the whole time and disables the screen saver. You can also remove or change the desktop background to your preferred image.

The sound volume of your device is set to a predefined value to ensure there is enough clarity. Your system protection will still run in the background but doesn't require any user-manual intervention.

How to put your computer into presentation mode

Windows 10 enables you to put your computer into presentation mode with a built-in solution. However, for Mac, users need to have a third-party application to allow the presentation mode. Therefore, the next subtopic will describe the best way to enter presentation mode on Mac devices and Windows 10.
