How to Maximize Google Slides in Edit Mode
When using Google Slides for manipulative activities, I prefer to maximize screen space whenever possible to focus attention on the content of my slides. However, presentation mode does not allow you to move or manipulate the objects on the slide. Previously, I would hide the speaker notes and my Chrome bookmarks bar to make eliminate some of the unnecessary clutter. But now, Google has added the ability to hide the “filmstrip”, which are the thumbnails of your slides that appear to the left, as well as enter full screen mode which allows you to still edit your slides.
