Adjust settings before giving a presentation

Presentation settings are options on a laptop that you can apply when giving a presentation. If you've ever had your screen turn black during a presentation, you'll appreciate the option allowing you to automatically turn off your screen saver every time you give a presentation.

When you turn on presentation settings, your laptop stays awake and system notifications are turned off. You can also turn off the screen saver, adjust the speaker volume, and change your desktop background image.
