P3 Control Panel - Desktop Presenter

P3 Control Panel - Desktop Presenter

When using any of our pen-grip mice or ErgoPoint with the Swiftpoint P3 Control Panel on Windows you will have access to the "Desktop Presenter" tools. This is a set of tools that enhance your ability to perform presentations using your PC; either in person or remotely via screen-sharing apps like Zoom or Teams.

Enabling the Desktop Presenter Toolbar

By default whenever you launch any of the presentation apps listed below the Desktop Presenter toolbar will appear on the side of your screen.
  1. Microsoft Teams
  2. Zoom
  3. PowerPoint
  4. Google Slides
  5. Skype
  6. GoToMeeting
  7. Webex
  8. Meet
But if you wish to use it with another app you can also launch it manually. Either via the right-click menu on the Control Panels system tray icon.


Or by opening the Control Panel and enabling it under "Presenter > Desktop Presenter".


If you would prefer the Desktop Presenter not to open automatically, this feature can be disabled for specific apps or entirely from this screen as well.
