Powerpoint viewer 2010 slideshow full screen still shows Windows Taskbar

I am running a Powerpoint slideshow (welcome.ppt) which is created/maintained in Powerpoint 2003, but is shown on a PC running the latest Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer (including support for 2010).   I am using the "/F" switch to make the slideshow open in full screen mode...this seems to work OK, but the Windows Taskbar keeps showing at the bottom of the screen...that is, it's not truly running "full screen".

Any ideas?

Thanks

What version of Windows are you using?

If you are using Windows Vista (I think it's the same with XP) you have to disable the Keep the taskbar on top of other windows function.

1. Right-click on the task bar and select properties
2. Now uncheck Keep the taskbar on top of other windows
