Allow programs to be run

Bytesize Monday – Allow programs to be run

Welcome back to PowerPoint training Online. In this weeks video we are going to show you how to allow programs to be run when you press an action button.

In last weeks Friday tutorial we showed you how to use the action button, and in that video we showed you how to have a button press open another presentation or even a different app. It was a simple thing to set up but once it was done, I noticed that the program did not always open. So I looked into it a little further.

At this point I realised that some peoples devices don’t allow them to automatically open programs. I also found that there is a simple fix. And that is what this video is.
