I have an interesting setup:
Rather than have two computers by the receptionist, we have one; the goal is to run a power point slideshow on a secondary monitor (already setup) using dual monitors, so that one monitor is facing a potential client when they walk in, and the other is the receptionist's own monitor to be working on. Problem is when I have the slideshow running and the receptionist has it selected, it works fine. As soon as they click off of the running slideshow (as in, open internet explorer, open our ERP system, etc, the slide show will remain on the last slide it displayed (the slideshow then becomes un-selected), and the only way to get it running again is to physically click the slideshow (again without clicking off of it, it HAS to remain selected in order for the slideshow to run)
Other than having a TV, or secondary computer, is there a better way to have this digital sign display, using the setup that I described, and without using EXPENSIVE third party tools?
