I'm trying to play a presentation with Powerpoint without seeing it in full screen. (my goal is to take notes on the presentation in a separate window/app).

Any ideas how to do this? I want to be able to view the animations/transitions, which I don't get when viewing the powerpoint in edit mode

Just figured it out: use "Set Up Show" on the ribbon (or in the Slide Show menu), which has an option for "Browse by an individual (window)"

Hope that helps someone else :)
