    Auto Launch Specific URL in Browser (XP)

    I have a presentation that will run automatically. When slide 10 appears I need PowerPoint to automatically launch a web browser and load a specific URL. Sort of like automating the action setting: hyperlink to. Does anyone know if and how this could be done.
    Thank you,
    Steve

    Hi Steve

    I have been trying to do something on this for the past few days but was unable to automate the opening, however whilst trrawling the web for something entirely different I happend upon this link

    http://skp.mvps.org/liveweb.htm

    And reading the description I though it might be what you want, it is an add-in called liveweb and from the description it appears that the web page can be displayed within the presentation, I have downloaded it but have not had time to play yet, good luck

    Steve
    Cheers

    Thank you so much Steve. I so appreciate your efforts. I installed it and wow. You can browse the web beautifully right from PPT. A simple click when ready and you are on the next slide. No need to navigating away from PPT to a web browser.

    Thanks again,
    Steve
