We all know that a PowerPoint presentation is essential for professionals and students. They use it to make visual slide shows for their reports and presentations.

Suppose you're presenting a PowerPoint presentation for particular events, meetings, and trade shows. In that case, you can easily loop a PowerPoint slideshow to slide your presentation automatically from the beginning until the final slide.
