    PowerPoint Controller


    Does anyone know any software that I can use on Monitor 1 (my laptopscreen with text to read) to control powerpoint presentation on Monitor 2?

    It looks stupid when the cursor cutting into the presentation every time I have to change slide or something

    If you move the cursor all the way to the side of the screen, it should not show during the presentation.

    The thing is that I need to scroll down the textpage on monitor 1 and therefore need to activate the window that the text is on and then the powerpoint window will be unactive.. the cursor will show when i get back to activate the powerpoint window

    Yeah, that is kind of a catch 22. Although you can hide the cursor in PP, but every time you reactivate the PP window it pops back up. They should have an option where you can hide the cursor for the length of the presentation.
