I have to give a presentation at a local school and they have digital white boards and overhead projectors. Unfortunately the only software they have for displaying a slideshow doesn't allow me to more fully fill the screen with the images on my pen-drive. Their IT people seem to have removed Windows Explorer with its slideshow option from the right-click menu and there's not an "All Programmes" option to look for an alternative. Is there a way of putting some basic slideshow software on the drive which would only output the end result to the screen and not make it think sosmeone was trying to load software to the system?
Thanks all for the replies. One thing I didn't make plain perhaps is that in the absence of Explorer you can't view non-photo files to click on them so the slide show would have to run automatically on insertion of the pen drive.
Oh dear, tried the Open Office route first but must have a bad first intallation on hd because there's no obvious way to start any constituent apps and also no apparent way to uninstall as it doesn't appear in add/remove progs list. Seems I'm stuck with it. I did try Irfanview but although I followed the instructions for a auto-starting CD, with modifications for the pen drive, that didn't work either.
I have one that will do it with a Floppy drive, but its part of my old Corel WordPerfect Office version 8 there must be software that will do it. If they did all that time ago with Presentation software in the above. it also allows you to pick the ones you want to see so although its one slide it can be used for different audiences. Not forgetting that a Floppy is only 1.33Meg in size
Graphicool1, I downloaded iPixSoft from your link. Not impressed. only a few basic tempates, following the nag screen link, you get "Forbidden" presumably 'till you've paid for a "Key", and most importantly any slide shows you make are defaced by a watermark until you buy the full software.
Not up to the usual standards of "Give away of the day"!
