Will this work with PowerPoint?

I present many presentations via PowerPoint for my classes from my MacBook. I want a product I can use so that I may stand away from my lap top to do the presentations and change slides throughout the presentation. Will this product work?

    Yes, it will work for that. You can hold the mouse in your hand, and with (left-) clicks click from slide to slide. However, if you accidentally hit the right part of the mouse, you'll right-click and the context menu pops up. So it's not ideal.

    I would recommend the Apple remote for presentations. The new Aluminum one works great for that, since you have full and simple control, once you memorized the buttons. Far less accidental false buttons presses.

  • Further to previous answer, in PowerPoint Options/Advanced/slideshow uncheck the "show menu on right mouse click" box. Right click wil then be a "back" button.
