Slide navigation (slide sorter view) during slide show

 

You may have noticed an option 'Show all slides' if you have right-clicked on the slide show window. This brings up an iterface which is similar to the slide sorter view while authoring. This view is the Slide Navigation view and can be used to quickly jump to any specific slide during the slide show. Hitting Esc takes you back to the original slide. This only works when the slide show is running full screen and is essentially a part of the Presenter view experience which can be shown on a single monitor too.

Supported versions: PowerPoint 2013 or later
