Maker sure you're on the first slide, in Normal View (if you're still in Slide Sorter view, double-click on the first slide).
Make sure you save your PPT before continuing!!!!!!
A lot of the computers seem to freeze after trying to insert a song.
In a folder, go to Student Share>Koppejan>Music... find a song you'd like to use.
Drag the file from the Student Share folder onto Slide #1.
You can move the song icon out of the way.
With the song icon still selected, go to the new Playback toolbar that popped up... click on "Play in Background".
This will make the song play for the entire slideshow, starting automatically and hiding the song icon.
List to your song.
With the song icon selected, either right-click and "Trim Audio" or use the button on the Playback toolbar.
Move the green slider to a good starting part of the song. Do not move the red slider!
Save your presentation. You're done!
Test out your entire slide show. Does it run on it's own - text & pictures coming up one at a time, going to next slides without you clicking?
F5 or use the button on the SLIDE SHOW tab.
Hit the Esc key to get out of it and back to normal view.
