How To Stop Powerpoint Showing On Two Screens

PowerPoint is an incredible tool when it comes to presentations. But sometimes, you may face a few hiccups here and there. One such issue is PowerPoint opening on two screens at the same time, which can be particularly annoying if you are dealing with confidential data or if it’s serving as a distraction during your presentation.

The good news is that you can quickly resolve this issue. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to stop PowerPoint from showing on two screens.

Step 1: Open PowerPoint

You can’t fix a problem without first identifying it. So, open the PowerPoint application and the presentation where you’re facing this issue.

Step 2: Go to Slide Show Tab

Once you’ve opened the problematic presentation, navigate to the “Slide Show” tab on the PowerPoint’s toolbar.

Step 3: Set Up Slide Show

In the “Slide Show” tab, you will find an option called “Set Up Slide Show”. Click on it. A new window will pop up.

Step 4: Choose Display Settings

In the new window, look for a section titled “Multiple monitors”. Here, you’ll find an option called “Display slide show on”. Click on the dropdown menu next to it. It will show you all the monitors connected to your computer.

Step 5: Select the Correct Monitor

Select the monitor where you want your presentation to be displayed. By doing this, you’re essentially telling PowerPoint to restrict the slide show display to this monitor only.

Step 6: Save and Exit

Finally, click on the “OK” button to save your changes. You can now exit the “Set Up Slide Show” window.

By following these straightforward steps, you can stop your PowerPoint presentation from showing on two screens. It’s worth mentioning that these instructions are applicable to PowerPoint 2013 and newer versions.

If you’re still facing problems, it might be a good idea to update your PowerPoint software or consult with a technical expert. Happy presenting!
