PowerPoint 2013 now uses Presenter View by default in dual-display computers.  To turn off Presenter View, follow these steps before running the presentation.

  1. On the ribbon (top menu bar), please select the SLIDE SHOW tab.
  2. In the Monitors group on the right, please uncheck the box for Use Presenter View.
  3. On the Monitor drop-down menu, change the selection from Automatic to Primary Monitor.

You may then continue your presentation just as you would normally.
