Here are some handy keyboard shortcuts that will help make your talks go smoother:

Launch from the beginning: F5

Next slide or animation: Spacebar or Enter

Go back a slide: Backspace

Jump to a specific slide: Type the number and hit Enter

Jump to the start: Home

Jump to the end: End

Blank the screen: B (for a black screen) or W (for white)

Mark up slides with a virtual pen: Ctrl-P

Remove pen marks: E

Access the Windows taskbar: Ctrl-T

End: Esc
