Some features of the Presenter view
Usually, there are two different monitors for the presentation. For example, the first screen is your laptop, and the second screen is the provided monitor, TV, projector, web application screen, etc.
Also, with access to the Internet, you can use an additional application such as WebEx or GoToMeeting or just present your PowerPoint presentation online using the Office Presentation Service, to show your presentation to the audience on the additional screens.
In the multi-screen mode, PowerPoint proposes the Presenter view, a special view of the presentation that is available on systems with more than one screen:
