Mine is Microsoft Powerpoint 2002 and Shift+F5 is not working in it :( – Antoops Aug 29 '10 at 11:07
I installed 2007 and now it is working. – Antoops Aug 31 '10 at 4:03
I have a multi-monitor Windows setup, and F5 and/or Shift+F5 both launch as one monitor with presentation, but also with one with presenter view. How do you just show the presentation without the presenter view? – J-Dizzle Jul 9 '15 at 18:13
ALT, W, D does show Reading View though. This somewhat solves my question above :) – J-Dizzle Jul 9 '15 at 18:14
And how can you jump to the next page without going through all the animations? – skan Sep 19 '15 at 17:20
