Set up Slido with presentation using one Windows computer

If you're a solo presenter or setting up Slido at a smaller event, you can present and manage Slido from the same computer by using an extended window. 

To do that you'll need: 

  • Your Windows computer
  • A projector connected to the computer
  • Stable internet connection
     

In this article: 

 

Connect the computer to a projector

Connect your laptop to a projector and press Win + P on your keyboard to activate the extended screen mode.

  1. Open your browser, type in wall.sli.do and enter the event code
  2. Move the window to the extended screen
  3. Press F11 or click the icon in the left bottom corner to enter fullscreen

 

Set up the presentation

  1. Open your presentation
  2. Move the window to the extended screen
  3. Press F5 to enter fullscreen

 

Switch screens

Now, click the browser icon in the taskbar to display Slido or click the PowerPoint icon to show the slides on the Extended screen.

 

Manage questions and polls

Finally, open a new browser window and log in to Slido to access the Admin view to activate polls and moderate questions. Keep the window on your main computer screen. The final setup should look like this:
