The Presentation Remote I Use With Google Slides, PPT, and Keynote

I don't often make suggestions for physical products to purchase. The exception being if I am if it is for a low-cost product for an individual teacher and it is a product that I have extensive hands-on experience using. That's why I was happy to recommend the Targus Laser Presentation remote to a reader named Therese. Therese asked me if there is a presenter-clicker-pointer that works well with Google Slides and PowerPoint.

I have used the Targus Laser Presentation remote for at least the last five years. It's a plug-and-play remote that I've used on Mac, Windows 7, Windows 10, and Chromebooks to run Google Slides, PowerPoint, and Keynote presentations. To use it all you need to do is plug the receiver into a USB port on your laptop, turn on the remote, and you're good to go. If you need it, the remote includes a black-out function for hiding your slides.

There are more expensive remotes on the market, but at $30-35 on Amazon the Targus Laser Presentation remote is hard to beat.
