    'powerpoint mouse disappears' (PP 2003)

    Duriong a PowerPoint show the mouse disappears and only reappears if I move the mouse around, a work around but I would think there is a some setting so that the mouse does not disappear during a regular PP slide Show.

    Jim,

    One way to make the mouse pointer always visible, is to set your current presentation to "kiosk" mode. This setting is saved with your presentation.

    Slideshow menu > set up show > kiosk mode

    Then you would need to add some buttons to each slide to enable you to move forward and backwards in the presentation. Invisible buttons work equally as well.

    Cheers
