When running my PowerPoint slideshow, the slide is not filling my 16 x 10 screen. What should I do?
Make sure the resolution for your external display on your Laptop is set to 1280 x 800. In PowerPoint change the slide size by doing the following:
- From the File menu, click Page Setup.
- Under "Slides sized for" menu, choose the correct option. Depending on the version of PowerPoint you are using, you may be able to select 16 x 10; otherwise choose Custom.
- If you chose Custom, enter 16 for the Width and 10 for the Height. Note: All slides in a presentation must be in the same orientation, but you can choose a different orientation for notes, handouts, and the outline.
