    As mentioned last week, I will bring an .exe file of my latest ProShow Gold AV for you to play via the projector to see if the projector/screen image is the same as my computer screen or a widescreen TV.

    There is provision within the ProShow Gold program to position the images for both computer and TV. So far I have not bothered with the TV but if the projector is the same as the TV, then I shall have to alter the slides.

    Many thanks


    PS- I do like these practical evenings.
