Description John Hartman 2020-06-07 17:45:42 UTC
Having the slide on the second monitor be full-screen is great.  But full-screen presenter console means you can't access the taskbar or start button to run or switch to other programs.  Disabling presenter console isn't a good option, since the edit view doesn't track the slide being shown on the second monitor.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a slide show

Actual Results:
1. First slide shows full-screen on seconds monitor
2. Presenter Console shows full-screen on main monitor, hiding task bar, start button, and another other open applications

Expected Results:
DESIRED result is a way to have Presenter Console not be full-screen.

Actually, I don't see any reason for Presenter Console to EVER be full-screen.  Maximized or window is fine, and is how PowerPoint works.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:

I guess it's possible, so tentatively New.

I am also interesed in this. 

This bug seems to be the same as this one: bug 62414 or bug 95258 and is probably a duplicate of bug 33495, which originally requested only the minimizing capability of the presenter console.
