Blanking The Screen During A Show
You may be in the middle of a presentation brief and desire to blank the screen so you can place the audience's attention on the speaker. How do we temporary blank the screen and what colors do we have as option? Just follow these procedures:
- First you must have a slideshow that is not automated, but each slide is changed via a mouse-click or a key on the keyboard.
- Just select the slide you want to blank, and strike the B key.
- This will give you a black screen. If you desire a white screen, then strike the W key instead.
- To advance to the next slide you can either hit the Spacebar, or Down Arrow key, or the N.
By using your B, W, or N keys you can blank the slide and continue you on when you are ready.
