    When I show my keynote presentation through a projector what shows on the screen is not what is on my desktop. It shows both the slide, the next slide, and elapsed time. How do I change this so that the screen shows what is on my desktop? Sorry if this is on the wrong forum.

    I don't have a second display immediately available to test this at the moment, but go to:

    keynote > preferences

    then the "slideshow" tab

    at the bottom select the display you want the slideshow to appear on and this will reverse what you're seeing on the displays (slideshow on projector, next slide and time on your display).

    Try enabling mirroring in the displays preferences to have both screens display the same thing.

    System Preferences>Displays, but the option will only show when the projector is connected.
