Make PowerPoint 2000 HTML open full screen

Thanks to PowerPoint MVP Shyam Pillai for this suggestion. This applies to PowerPoint 2000.
If you use PowerPoint 2002, see Making PowerPoint 2002 HTML open full screen instead.

If the presentation is one that has been saved as HTML , then do the following.

Open the Outline.htm
Locate the Load function which looks as follows...

function Load()
{
 if( IsWin("PPTOtl" ) ){ LoadOtl(); parent.gOtlLoaded=true; return }
 if( IsWin("PPTNav" ) ){ LoadNav("NavObj",UpdNav); parent.gNavLoaded=true;
return }
 if( IsWin("PPTOtlNav" ) ){ LoadNav("OtlNavObj",UpdOtlNav);
parent.gOtlNavLoaded=true;
return }

Just add another line at the bottom - FullScreen();

.i.e the new Load function will look as follows

function Load()
{
 if( IsWin("PPTOtl" ) ){ LoadOtl(); parent.gOtlLoaded=true; return }
 if( IsWin("PPTNav" ) ){ LoadNav("NavObj",UpdNav); parent.gNavLoaded=true;
return }
 if( IsWin("PPTOtlNav" ) ){ LoadNav("OtlNavObj",UpdOtlNav);
parent.gOtlNavLoaded=true;
FullScreen();
return }

Save the file. Now the show will switch to Full Screen automatically when viewed in the browser, or at least with recent versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Please test with other browsers if wide compatibility is important to you.

Another approach would be to generate HTML that's full screen in the first place, which you can do with the PPTools PPT2HTML add-in. You can find more info about PPT2HTML on the RnR PPTools home page
