OfficeOne Screen Saver: Display PowerPoint Slideshows As Screen Savers
In a previous post we showed you how to run two different slideshows on separate monitors. But what about running your PowerPoint slideshows as Screen Savers? OfficeOne Screen Saver is an application which lets you run your PowerPoint presentations as slideshows in screen saver mode. Moreover, you can even run different slideshows on separate monitors simultaneously. This can be particularly handy for multi-monitor users who might be willing to represent their presentations or some kind of PowerPoint powered slideshow when the desktop is inactive.
Use PowerPoint Videos, Animations And Transitions To Create Presentation Screen Savers
If you are confused about the utility of this application, you should consider the fact that you can use animations, videos and transitions from your PowerPoint as a screen saver during presentations. This can help you keep low battery settings for your portable device (e.g. laptop or Windows 8 tablet) and also provide you with a useful way of covering up your inactive desktop when you are giving out a presentation. After installation, OfficeOne Screen Saver can be accessed via Personalize->Screen Saver (in Windows 7 and Windows 8).
Select Presentations For Multiple Monitors
Once selected, click Settings and select a screen saver for your monitor. If you are using multiple monitors, more than one selection option will appear. Click Browse and select a presentation for each connected monitor. Before you apply the settings, you can hit Preview to see how the screen saver(s) might look on you monitor(s).
Enable Keyboard And Mouse Activity For Screen Saver Slide Shows
You can also enable keyboard and mouse activity to more efficiently manage your screen saver presentations.
