When I run a PowerPoint slideshow, the slide does not fill my 16:10 screen. What should I do?

  • Make sure the resolution for your computer's external display is set to 1280 x 800. Then do the following in PowerPoint:
    1. In the File menu, select Page Setup.
    2. In the Slides sized for box, choose 16x10 if available. If not, choose Custom.
    3. If you chose Custom, enter the width and height you want.
    4. Click OK to save.
