Does this solution work for interactive and still let you interact with buttons?
If you hide mouse pointer in presentation settings you can no longer interact with buttons so I want to make sure this isnt the case with this as well.

I'm fairly sure it does, but it has been 7 months since I used it. It's quite quick and easy to try out, you should try it out to see if it acts as expected for you.

Thanks.

I use the one mentioned for Windows and it hides the mouse after as little as 2 seconds (depending on your selected settings) and would reappear briefly while being used with a mouse or touch.

It doesn't remove the ability to interact with the screen.

Any other solutions for Windows?

I tried using the one here for Windows 7 and it won't hide on reboot even though it's set to (I've tried both options) so it shows up over the presentation and causes crazy video glitching.

Glen,

Do you have hide mouse pointer checked? Are you running Native or Chrome App Player?
