Just a few points to know before you begin to practice making interactive PowerPoints with CPS. 1) You must open the "CPS" program from the Icon (usually located on your desktop with a new install) to be able to create and edit slides within the program (Instructions). 2) You must open previously created CPS PowerPoints by FIRST opening the CPS for PowerPoint Icon before editing any of the slides. 3) The program will work without a CPS RF wireless device being attached to the computer.
