    View browser within a slide show

    PowerPoint 2000 allows the insertion of working HTML links in PowerPoint presentations. Here's my problem: if I view a slide show in full screen format and click on a link, the browser is launched but it is behind the slide show and can't be viewed without shutting down the slide show.

    Is there a setting that will make the browser launch on top of the slide show instead of behind it? I want to be able to click on a link within a slide show, view the HTML page, kill the browser and then continue with the slide show. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    One work around is to Alt/Tab to the browser and Alt/Tab back to your presentation

    I would be interested to know if anyone has ideas on this. I use PowerPoint 2000 on Windows 98 with IE 5.5. My browser pops up on top, just the way you want it to!
