The repertoire of various views available in PowerPoint 2013 ranges from some views that you use all the time to others that you may have never bothered to explore. The latter category probably includes Reading view. Reading view is similar to Slide Show view in some ways because in both views, the slide is shown in full screen mode. However, in Reading view you also see the PowerPoint title bar and the Status Bar at the top and bottom of the interface respectively. Additionally, you can also view the Windows task bar at the bottom of the screen.
