Using the Presenter View
If you have a dual monitor setup, you can use the Presenter View to full screen your PowerPoint presentation on Windows 10. This view allows you to see your current slide, speaker notes, and upcoming slides on one screen while your audience sees the presentation in full screen on the other screen. To access the Presenter View, click on the “Slide Show” tab and then select “Presenter View” in the “Monitors” section.
Using the Windows Slideshow Feature
Windows 10 also has a built-in slideshow feature that allows you to full screen your PowerPoint presentation without having to open the PowerPoint program.

Using the “B” Key
If you need to pause your presentation and hide your slides, you can use the “B” key to display a black screen or the “W” key to display a white screen. This can be useful if you need to take a break or answer questions without your audience seeing your slides.
