How to Doodle in PowerPoint

Have you ever wished that you have more control over how you can interact with your presentation while you’re talking to your audience?

This is something that can help make sure you’re getting your point across and connecting with your audience but also something that isn’t always the easiest to achieve with the standard laser pointer.

I’m going to show you how to draw on your PowerPoint presentation to help get your point across.

First, you have to be in the Slideshow mode, or in other words presenting your presentation, the easiest way to do this is to press F5 this will start your show at your first slide.

While presenting you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P to access the pen tool, you will see a small dot when you move your mouse around, when you hold the left mouse button down and drag around the screen you will now be drawing in your presentation.

If you have made a mistake simply erase it by pressing E on the keyboard.

When you have finished it is a good idea to hide the pen (Ctrl+H) so you don’t accidentally draw on the screen when your click was meant to move to the next slide.
