Temporarily hide your presentation

If you’re in the middle of a presentation and someone asks a question unrelated to the slide on screen, your slide doesn’t have to become a distraction. Instead, you can temporarily hide it by pressing a single key.

Just press W to show a blank white slide, and press it again to go back. If you want something other than white, press B for a black slide, then press it again to return. This quick trick can help you control the attention of your audience during a presentation.

Watch the video below to see how quickly you can hide your presentation.
