PowerPoint Slide Show Types (Individual, Speaker, Kiosk)?

I can't find any documentation on what the differences are amongst the three options for "show type"   (See graphic for location of dialog)

presented by a speaker -- the PPT file takes up the entire screen of your computer.

browsed by an individual (window) -- the PPT file plays in a window. This is handy if you need to play two presentations side by side, for example. Not used very often.

browsed at a kiosk (full screen) -- kiosk mode is designed for, well, kiosks. The slides don't advance with a mouse click (or space bar or arrows, etc.) with a kiosk presentation. You should provide a way for users to get from slide to slide. That can be automatic transitions, or it can be hyperlinks or action settings that move you from slide to slide when clicked. Animations are started automatically, not "on click." Kiosk mode resets itself to the first slide after 5 minutes of inactivity.
