Use F5 to start your Slide Show in PowerPoint

Have you ever been in a business meeting and you see the presenter open a PowerPoint file and then struggled to launch the presentation.

You can use the Slide Show button on the status bar to launch the presentation but the button can be small and not that easy to click on if your PC is on a podium at an awkward angle.

The quickest way to start a Slide Show is to press F5.  No mouse, no searching for buttons or commands, and it works in all versions of PowerPoint.
