Presenting with Presentation Remotes (Clickers)

This support page is about Prezi Classic. If you’re looking for help with Prezi Next, please click here.

When you present live on stage, moving along your prezi's path with a presentation remote (clicker) creates a great presentation experience for your audience.

What you need to know when it comes to presentation remotes (clickers)

  • Most presentation remotes should work with Prezi Classic as soon as you take them out of the box. If you have Flash 11.3 or a higher version installed, select Present mode and then click the 'Allow' button on the Flash pop-up that appears at the top of the screen.
  • Your prezi needs to have a predefined path in order to work with a presentation remote.
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed. Presentation remotes will work with Prezi Classic in Present mode if your version of Flash is 11.3 or higher. You can get the latest version of Flash Player here.
  • Remember to click the 'Allow' button at the top of the screen, once you enter Present mode.

Presenting from your Android or iOS device

If you don't have a presentation remote, you can navigate through your presentation right from your Android or iOS device. If you have an iPhone or iPad, click here to learn how control your presentation from your device. Otherwise, if you're an Android user, click here.


If you have an Apple Remote you will need to reconfigure the buttons.


In most cases, your prezi's path can be advanced by clicking 'LEFT' and 'RIGHT' on your remote. You can zoom in using the UP and DOWN keys. If your remote is reconfigurable, we recommend you set it up in this way for optimal performance:

  • Next path step: RIGHT key
  • Previous path step: LEFT key
  • Zoom in: UP key
  • Zoom out: DOWN key

Adding the keyboard shortcut control+SPACE (alt+command+SPACE on a Mac) to your remote clicker, so that you can zoom out and display an overview of everything, can be a useful addition if your remote clicker enables custom keys.
