PowerWinnow is a small but powerful tool to make your presentations more interactive and more impressive.
PowerWinnow enables you you draw arrows, circles, boxes, lines and text on what ever is being presented on the screen. Change the transparency of what you draw on the screen to get text marker effects and more.
During presentation you can highlight facts on your slides you are focusing, add comments and so on. In contrast to predefined animations inside your presentation, such live comments will attract much more attention from your audience.
PowerWinnow is very easy to use.
After program start only a small icon will be visible in the right section of the taskbar.
To start commenting the screen's content, simply press the Print-Key of your keyboard.
The screen is now framed with a slim red border, so that you know that are in PowerWinnow mode.
You can now start drawing on the screen mith your mouse.
