By learning just a few keyboard shortcuts, you can stop sweating the mechanics of presenting - and give more of your attention to your audience and your message.
Here's a quick selection of presentation boons that will save you time and make you look super pro, starting with the basics:
Start a presentation in Slide Show view from the current slide (more about Slide Show view here for 2010, here for 2007, and here for 2003)
Run the next animation or advance to the next slide
Enter, or Spacebar
Jump to a particular slide
Type the slide number and press Enter
Return to the previous slide
Jump to the first (or last) slide
Home, or End
End a slide show
Esc, or - (hyphen)
And onto some fancier moves:
Move the active window from the primary display to the secondary display
Depending on your keyboard, either
Render screen white or black
W, or B
Go to the next hidden slide (read more about hidden slides in PowerPoint 2010 and 2007)
Display a pen cursor
Display an arrow cursor
Hide the cursor
Tip: If you get stuck, you can always press F1 in Slide Show view to access keyboard shortcuts, like so:
We have extensive topics for shortcuts you can use while delivering your presentation (whether you're using PowerPoint 2010, PowerPoint 2007, or PowerPoint 2003.)
Want shortcuts you can use when creating your presentation? We have those, too (for PowerPoint 2010, PowerPoint 2007, and PowerPoint 2003).
If there's a shortcut you can't live without, let us know!

Why is it that in Word 2007+ a user is allowed to create their own keyboard shortcuts but not in PowerPoint?
If shortcuts are so useful that "you can stop sweating the mechanics of presenting", why was the ability to customize shortcuts actively removed from PowerPoint 2007 (it was present in 2003)
Thanks for the tips. I've learned a lot from you.
Hello, how do you turn off shortcuts? For example I am using hyperlink navigation through out and I want to turn off the enter and mouse click to advance the slide. Thanks
@Arnie, take a look at this site and let me know if it still doesn't help: technet.microsoft.com/.../cc179143.aspx
