Single Slideshow Window Add-in

This add-in is designed to ensure that any point in time only one slide show window exists. This is very useful when you have several linked slideshows. By default PowerPoint opens a separate slide show window for each linked show while leaving the original window open. You are left with several windows and one needs to exit out of each window manually. This add-in rids you of that annoying task. When a new slide show window is opened the add-in will close the previous one and hence at any point only one window will be running.


Version Supported

PowerPoint 97 or later
