    Further to my many posts regarding SP2 fullscreen - I thought I might quickly try to appeal to the hearts and minds of PowerPoint fans.

    For anyone who gives presentations - using "Save as Web Page" from Power Points - you now have all the IMPACT of your presentation removed.

    Alot of questions about SP2 lately. Can't you C9 guys ask someone with real insight into the how's and why's of SP2 to come over and do some posting?

    Maybe there's room in that $300 million roll out budget for Q'n'As. Smiley

    The Presentations should have never been full screen off the bat to begin with.

    By the way, they can just press F11.

    you still get the status bar the toolbar adds all the icons and address bar..

    After you press F11, you need to right click it and click autohide...

    i have auto hide on by default

    so it disables it - and comes back on screen.. so I am to re - turn it off.. is that correct?


    no way to get rid of status bar - defeats whole point of full screen

    By now, I'm guessing that you thought that you could get full screen by examining an HTML powerpoint presentation. It is disabled so someone can't hijack IE using the same method that the HTML Power Point Presentation does.

    Now would you please stop whining.

    Jamie, I'm sure there is a solution to that problem. We just have to lure someone who knows the answer to get in here and do some posting.  Smiley
