Reading view is similar to Slide Show view in some ways because, in both views, the slide is shown in full-screen mode. However, in Reading view, you also see the PowerPoint title bar and the Status Bar at the top and bottom of the interface respectively. Additionally, you can also view the Windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen.

Reading view helps you in quickly navigating through slides, and also allows easy access to the Windows taskbar at the same time to switch to other available open programs or windows. Also, Reading view is great for presentation designers who want to quickly look at their slides in full screen mode and also be in sync with other applications running at the same time.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
