    Any ideas how to change slides in a presentation using the front row remote and not having to use the keyboard?

    You should be able to use the Apple remote by pressing at I<< = Back >>I = Forward. It's pretty easy to use. :cool:

    Yup, it does work. Make sure your remote is paired with the machine and 'Disable infrared receiver" isn't ticked in Security Prefs.

    You specified Keynote at the start of this thread. That's a different program from PowerPoint.

    I used the Apple remote to present my Keynote presentation, and it went very well. I had to kind of maneuver it around my teacher because my MBP was on the other side of the table and my fat teacher sat in between me and my MBP. Other than that, it worked very well.

    No, Keynote. Your title says 'Keynote Presentation'.

    well I read just now that Powerpoint 2008 supports the usage of remote... didnt work in 2004 Office. SO will try it out.. and as for the title, sorry, I am a recent mac switcher. Didnt know a program called Keynote even exists :eek:
