How To Create Self-Running PowerPoint Slide Shows

  • Scoop.it

Instead of walking your audience through different slides manually, it can be sometimes useful to create a self-running slideshow with textual content. Such slide shows are often found on screens located at the entrance of a company’s branch office, with brand advertisements, mission statements or with pictures of the best employees of a quarter. Furthermore, a self-running slide show also has the added advantage of creating a video presentation style slide show, which can be presented with or without a presenter. PowerPoint Slide Show Converter is a Windows application that converts PowerPoint Presentations into self-running executable slide shows.

Convert PowerPoint To EXE Or Screensaver

With this app you can quickly convert your PowerPoint files to an EXE file, which upon being launched acts as a timed slide show with background music and user-defined transition effects. This can enable you to create an auto-run file and burn it to a CD/DVD, create a timed slide show for presenting it to an audience or even transform your PPT to a screen saver.

The app runs in two modes, namely; the Simple Mode and Special Mode. The difference between the two modes is that the Special Mode has more options like the ability to retain animations, create screen savers and to add a background score to your self-running slide shows.

Once done, click Make Slideshow to generate your self-running file.
