Prepare ahead of time –
set up the computer and projector –
load the software –
open the file - test it out –
turn off the computer and projector.
Have a coffee or pop –
come back and assume you are starting your presentation
turn on the computer and projector
start the software –
open the file –
run through your complete presentation, slide by slide - close the
file and turn off the computer and projector.
Prior to the presentation –

CD Burner so you can copy to the burner.
careful with sound files –
they do not always become embedded in the main file
you may need to copy the sound file separately.
careful if you have a timed slide show. Displaying on a data
projector may affect the timing. Also, if you display on a
different computer, the speed of the processors may affect the timing.
