Use a mmhmm screen share slide to share your presentation software window

Keynote, PowerPoint, and Google Slides have a feature called "present to window" that makes it significantly easier to share the contents of a presentation without making the toolbars and presenter notes visible to your audience. In any of these programs, first, present to a new window, then use an mmhmm screen share slide to select that new window to present. 

Here's how to set up "present to window" in several presentation software platforms:

Once "present to window" is set up, create a mmhmm screen share slide to share your presentation slides.
