I am a singer and I would like to use my Surface tablet as a support for the lyrics. I can get it to work correctly, but only horizontal.
I would like to use it vertical, but that reduces the text enormously.
So my question, how can I increase the background, in order to get the whole song on one page.
Am i clear enough?

Thanks Ambucias for your respond. I'll try to explain better.
Make a slide in Powerpoint on your Surface tablet, in the horizontal position, activate the slide show and the text becomes large and covers the total surface of the screen.
Now turn the tablet in the vertical position, the text becomes much smaller and covers only the centre of the screen.
So far so good?
Now what I would like to see, is that the text in the vertical positions has the same size and covers the whole screen, just as in the horizontal position, but in such a way that I can move from one slide to the other.
But maybe it is not possible.

Looking forward to your answer.

Sorry I write in english, french writing will be more difficult to me, but I'l try when really necessary.

I suggest that you create the slide in the vertical position first

To change the slide size:

Select the Design tab of the toolbar ribbon.

Select Slide Size Slide Size icon near the far right end of the toolbar.

Select Standard (4:3 aspect ratio) or Widescreen (16:9) or Custom Slide Size.

You can also change the slide's orientation but not after the slide is created.

Changing the page orientation of certain slides in a presentation. PowerPoint isn't able to do that. All slides in a presentation have the same page orientation.

Bonne journée

P.S. You can also chose portrait rather than landscape.
