View your speaker notes as you deliver your slide show in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Using Presenter View is a great way to view your presentation with speaker notes on one computer (your laptop, for example), while your audience views the notes-free presentation on a different monitor (projected on a larger screen, for example).

At the bottom of the PowerPoint slide window, click Slide Show.
