How to Use PowerPoint's Laser Pointer
Once you have started a presentation, PowerPoint has tools that you can use to enhance your viewers’ experience.
The Laser Pointer tool will display a red dot on the screen that you can use to direct the attention of your viewers.
The pointer turns to a red dot.
To control whether the cursor is always hidden, always visible, or automatically appears and disappears, click the Options button and then select Arrow Options.
There are two tools—a Pen and a Highlighter—that you can use to annotate the slides from within the presentation.
No matter which pen tool you select, you can change its color at the bottom of the menu.
The arrow pointer changes shape, depending on the type of pen you selected.
To erase an annotation, press E on your keyboard.
Although you should make sure everything on your slide is big enough to see, there may be times when you want to zoom in on something.
Some of the screen is washed out. What's still visible is the zoom area.
The area in the zoom box now fills the screen.
The Options menu contains more settings that you can use to control how the presentation plays.
