Click the Menu button (in the center of navigational buttons) to Print the slide, Copy it, View the Presentation in Full Screen, and for ending the Show. For advance help, click Help to bring up Slide Show Help dialog which includes Slide show navigation shortcuts, PowerPoint Viewer shortcuts, and Media info, etc.
