Here’s a quick tip for you.

One of my friends wanted to share a Power Point presentation on a Google+ Hangout. He tried screen share feature but the only screen he could share was the presenter view not the full screen PowerPoint slideshow that he usually show in his online training sessions.

He wanted the people he hangout with to only see the slide that you would see on a projector or screen when attending a live presentation.

After playing with PowerPoint for few minutes I found the way to show a full screen PowerPoint presentation on Google+ hangout.  The setting is in Power Point and is dead simple to fix. 

initially posted this tip on our Google+ page, and thought it is quicker to embed it below.


Let me know if you have any troubles with showing a PowerPoint on hangout.
