Google Slides – Prevent the pop-up toolbar from popping during presentation

I using Google Slides as my presentation tool of choice! Mostly for reasons related to the full screen application behaviour, however at the time of writing, I am using Google Slides in “windowed” mode during the creation of training videos.

The pop-up toolbar in the lower left-hand corner was starting to make my life a misery…

Here is a way to prevent it from appearing!

What’s the big deal here? Why?

During a live presentation, the pop-up toolbar is a minor annoyance in my opinion. However whack that into a recorded presentation and now it is a major issue!

With the use of URL parameters it is possible to drop Google Slides into alternative presentation modes, which I find to be extremely useful!

Don’t want to watch the video?

Start your Google Slides presentation in windowed mode, in the address bar, exchange

"edit#slide=id.p"

for

preview?rm=minimal

or

preview?rm=full

And you are away!
