Open ppt in two windows / extended windows
So here is a strange post. I was creating a deck for one of the upcoming conferences and I work on a dual monitor. Since I had done a similar talk before, I wanted to quickly refer the same.
The Problem: Cannot open two instances of ppt , for comparison / editing.
Why?: Natively PowerPoint is a single instance application (you can only have
one running instance at any time).
Workaround? : If you want to edit both the presentations on two different monitors:
you wouldneed to:
- Open both the presentations
- Restore the main power-point window
- Now stretch the main window across two monitors
- From the ribbon /menu go to View | "Window" | Select "Arrange All" to arrange your open presentations side-by-side.
