Customer Question

hi - i'm a novice powerpoint user... and thought I was getting it working ok... then I received a PP presentation I'd like to edit - but for some reason it only opens in slideshow and I don't see how to minimize w/o closing the presentation. Normally I would press escape from the full screen show and it would shrink back to the working view - but when I do that, it simiply ends the show.

How do I correct this - or am I missing something?

Can you tell me which version of Office that you have installed?

Try right-clicking the Powerpoint file and select Edit.

Alternatively, open Powerpoint first and select the presentation under OPEN

If that doesn't work, just let me know and we'll keep at it.
