I would start by making sure your video drivers are upto date. The "Record" function of Presenter 10 will record your webcam and your screen. Clicking that button is the same as launching Adobe Presenter Video Express.
Jorrma - I doubt that is the issue although I did check with Lenovo and my video drivers are up to data. What I have discovered is that if I go into PowerPoint - Monitors - Monitor (add select) Primary Monitor and un check Use Presenter View, Adobo Presenter seems to work (Video) but what happens is I get the full scale slide shown on my monitor and loose access to the Adobe Presenter Video Express dialog, which appear to minimize into my Taskbar. But maybe that is what is suppose to do. If I select "Show Presenter View" Adobe / Power Point again tries to use both my monitor and laptop screens which seems to some how affect my Bluetooth and then I lose my mouse and have to reboot. But that is another issue I can deal with
At this point I don't know what right looks like do you all have any sort of training video or user manual to start with. Lots of video touting how great Presenter is (and no doubt it is). But I'm looking for something like "Your First Video Presentation " etc to get a feel of what should be happening.
Ah, ok. For the slide show issue, I have that too. I do know there is a setting somewhere in PPT to turn that off, but I haven't taken the time to dig up that information. You can exit that by hitting Esc when it goes to slide show mode and then you should be able to work with the APVE application.
As to a training material:
