Provided by Molly Pell, Senior Systems Analyst

A new feature in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 allows you to broadcast slide shows to remote viewers over the web. All you need is a Windows Live ID. Microsoft provides a free Broadcast service, and creates the URL for you to share with your viewers.

Just click File, Save & Send, Broadcast Slide Show, Broadcast Slide Show:
