So i have these Magic Info Pro (samsung) Software, and i installed on a remote screen the Power Point Viewer. But every time it starts, i have the titlebar.
My boss wishes that this bar dissapears. So i see that it is possible to right klick while PPT is running and go to FullScreen Mode.
I also found that it is possible to execute PPT like.

C:/PowerPoint Viewer/ /F C:/welcome.ppt

And this would do exactly what we wish.
But MagicInfo is executing this Presentations, and i cant change the code of this software. So is there a way, to let a program (in my case PPT) start in Windows, with spezific parameters? Like the /F? (it is ok if it would start every time with that parameter since this computer is really just a node where content is saved)

I had the same problem and I'm using Window 7 Embedded and Powerpoint Viewer 2010. If you are using Powerpoint Viewer 2010, you will have to install Office 2010 SP1 otherwise the presentation won't loop.

Add the switch /f to the registry keys


It's probably not needed to edit both keys but I'm not sure which one is used.

The Default parameter for the registry keys should look something like

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\pptview.exe /f "%1"

I had to add the /f flag to the following keys to get PowerPoint Viewer to open in full screen.


The suggestions in the accepted answer didn't work for me.

This solution differs from the actually accepted one because the keys are ... .SlideShow. ... instead of ... .Show. .... – Hastur Apr 15 at 12:03

Microsoft PPT has the ability to save your powerpoint as a Windows Media Video (WMV) which can be initiated on startup in full screen mode and looping. It maybe a bit resource intensive but it's a quick fix
