Can a powerpoint presentation be setup to run automatically when laptop starts?

Hi guys,

If possible, can anyone tell me or point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to have a power point presentation start automatically when a laptop loads up. I tried putting it in the start up menu but it just opens the presentation in its editing form but would like it to simply play the presentation without having to start it up myself.

Thanks

Turn it into a PPS (powerpoint show) first, and add that to the startup maybe?
#2
use powerpoint viewer, and put in your startup group - powerpoint viewer just shows it has the presentation.

Open your presentation. Select Save As... from File Menu. Scroll down the file types and select PowerPoint Show (*.pps). Save the file and link to that then the presentation should open and run in slideshow mode.

If you want the slides to move on automatically then on each slide right click and select "Slide Transistion" . In the option that come up on the right of the screen you will see an option below "Advance Slide" that reads Automatically After. Check the check box and enter the time you want.

Hope that helps. Tested on PowerPoint 2003.

Cheers,
Al
