    On an older version of PowerPoint, if I was on a computer connected to a projector and I double-clicked a .pps file, the show would display on the projector and I would be in Presenter Mode on the computer. Now with PowerPoint 2013 and 2016, doing the same thing does result in the show displaying on the projector, but I do not see Presenter Mode on the computer. I have a ton of .pps files and need to be able to open and display them at a moment's call, so using .pps and having it open in Presenter Mode is extremely useful. Is there any way that I can have that behavior in the newer versions of PowerPoint?
