How do I screen share a PowerPoint presentation and view presenter notes using multiple monitors?

**A practice round is advised before streaming a live presentation**


  1. Open the PowerPoint presentation you wish to share.

  2. Start/join your Zoom meeting.

  3. Click Share Screen in the meeting controls.

  4. Select your primary monitor from the share options displayed, and then click Share.

    • If you are not sure which monitor is your primary, select the one that PowerPoint is opened on.
  5. Switch back to PowerPoint, and then click the Slide Show tab.

  6. Begin the presentation by selecting the Play from Start Or Play from Current Slide options.

    • If you shared your primary monitor, participants will see the PowerPoint in Slide Show view. The green border indicates the monitor you are currently sharing.

    • The Presenter view will appear on your secondary monitor. Use this to view your slide notes and control the presentation.

  7. If you are not sharing the correct monitor, make the following adjustment:

    • From the Presenter view of Display Settings, and then click Swap Displays. PowerPoint will switch the monitor that is used for the Slide Show view.

    • Alternatively, you can click New Share on your Zoom screen share controls and select the screen showing the PowerPoint in Slide Show view.
