LiveWeb - insert and view web pages real-time.

Note: OfficeTips is moving to a new domain -

Use LiveWeb to insert web pages into a PowerPoint slide and refresh the pages real-time during slide show. Display web pages without ever leaving the confines of your PowerPoint slide show. No coding required.  LiveWeb works with documents off your local drive too. You can specify relative paths. LiveWeb will also look for files in the presentation folder if the files have local drive information and cannot be located at the location specified by the user during slideshow. LiveWeb encapsulates the need to insert a web browser control manually and write code to update the web pages within the control during the slide show. It consists of two components.
1. Wizard component - Create a list of web sites which you wish to add to the slides.
2. Real-time update component - Automatically refreshes the page every time you visit the slide which contains the web browser control.

With LiveWeb you can display acrobat documents (PDF) , java applets, VRML etc within the slide show real-time. Please visit: LiveWeb FAQ
