Share full screen slides & see notes in PowerPoint Presenter View with 1 screen

When you display your slides full screen in Slide Show mode you can actually switch to Presenter View and share the hidden Slide Show window in a virtual meeting. This way your attendees see high-res slides while you see your notes and have all the expert features of Presenter View.

Below are videos that show you how to do this in the main meeting platforms: Zoom, Teams, and Google Meet. It does not work in Webex that shares all open windows of an application.

Zoom in Windows

Zoom on a Mac

Zoom on the Web

If you are using the Zoom web client to connect to the meeting, the only change from the videos above will be how the Zoom sharing dialog looks when you want to share the PowerPoint Slide Show window. In the Zoom web client sharing dialog, you need to click on the Window tab at the top and then select the Slide Show window.
