Use a Dual Screen or Split Screen for Presentations Follow
One way to ensure your presentation is smooth is to plan for a split-screen or dual-screen presentation, where you display part of your screen (your presentation) to the attendees, and have another area that's only visible to you, where you can view the Pathable app to see questions as they come in.
Here are some options!
The simplest solution:
If you have two monitors, you are set! Choose the appropriate monitor when you begin your presentation:
Solutions with the software you have:
Windows 10 has a feature called Snap that you can use to "snap" your window panes into a side-by-side mode, then you can select which one you'd like to broadcast on Zoom. Instructions and a demo video are available at this link. Note that Snap and Split View are helpful, but don't actually let you see both displays at once, once you go into Presentation Mode in PowerPoint/Slides.
Mac users can use the Split View feature to achieve this same result. Instructions and a demo video are available at this link.
Mac users with an iPad can enable the Sidecar feature (information here) to use their iPad as a second display. Note that we strongly recommend broadcasting your first display (your monitor), not your iPad.
Free and Easy Add-Ons:
The Dualless extension for Chrome (available here) allows Chrome users to split their window into panes, like a dual-monitor setup. The video below explains Dualless and Google Meet, rather than Zoom, but the process is nearly identical.
A Full-Service Add-On:
Duet Display is a full-featured app for mobile devices (either Android or iOS) to become a second screen to any other computer (PC or Mac). If you have a PC, and want to use an iPad as a second display, Duet may be for you! Duet Display is a paid app ($9.99), purchased through the Apple App Store (click here) or Google Play Store (click here).
A second option with similar features is Reflector 3, available here.
This video shows how to use the "Snap" feature. It's also a good indicator of why a dedicated two-screen setup or Sidecar-type setup is ideal, since you'll see in this video that the speaker can't see both displays at once when using the split-screen method.
