How to use Apple Remote to play your PowerPoint presentation

Remember that you can always use your Apple Remote display to change the slides in your PowerPoint presentation. It will help you to save time, and you won’t need to change the images appearing on the screen by click on the keyboard. Apple Remote can be used from a maximum distance of 30 meters, and it’s ideal for big conferences or universities and school classes. Last versions of PowerPoint, such as 2011 and 2008 editions, include drivers to use Apple Remote. Let’s see how to take advantage of this Apple display.

First, you will have to hold your remote control and press Menu and Text buttons at the same time for 8 or 10 seconds. Your Mac will detect the display, and you will only have to open your PowerPoint presentation and put Slideshow mode. Your presentation will start, and you will be able to use your remote control buttons for moving through the different slides and images.

Remember that this drivers are only able in last PowerPoint versions (2008), and to use Apple Remote in PowerPoint 2004 or older, you will have to use apps like iRed Lite.
