Bottom of presentation screen is cutoff - WORKAROUND

We noticed that our corporate logo in the bottom right corner of the Powerpoint slide show screen was being cutoff. Apparently the bottom ~1/2" was not appearing on the attendees screens. We were using Show | <Powerpoint slide show>. We tried following tech support's advice and used Show | Rectangle, but it was difficult to adjust correctly and we ended up showing some of the bottom toolbar. We then tried using Show | Rectangle w/o icons and toolbar, but the toolbar was still there.

 

Our fix, after plenty of fiddling and guessing, was to set the presenter's taskbar to Auto-hide. Then we went back to using Show | <Poweroing slide show> and all displayed well.

 

There was a 3/20/20 community question where the left side did not show up entirely, and I'm betting that their taskbar was a vertical left side taskbar.

 

Anyway, this is just FWIW. Tech support has no idea what is causing this problem as of 10/15/20 and says they have received no calls about it.

Another impact on this is when you decide to share your screen to the audience, you can choose "clean" and regular.

I'm pretty sure we tried that when online with tech support, and that's why we moved to the rectangle as a way to kinda fix the problem. But I'm happy to try again and be proven wrong 🙂
