[KB6703] Configure Presentation mode on client workstations in ESET Endpoint Products (6.x)


While in Presentation mode, ESET endpoint products will suppress pop-ups and scheduled ESET security tasks so that important presentations go uninterrupted and CPU usage is minimized. System protection still runs in the background when Presentation mode is enabled, but does not demand any user interaction.

ESET Firewall

If ESET Firewall is in Interactive mode and Presentation mode is enabled, you might have trouble connecting to the internet. This can be problematic if you start a program that connects to the internet. Normally, you would be asked to confirm such an action (if no communication rules or exceptions have been defined), but user interaction is disabled in Presentation mode. The solution is to define a communication rule for every application that might be in conflict with this behavior or to use a different filtering mode for ESET Firewall.

To configure individual client workstations to automatically enter Presentation mode when an application is run in full-screen mode (for example, your screensaver or internet browser), follow the steps below:

  1. Open the main program window of your Windows ESET product.

  2. Press the F5 key to open Advanced setup.
  3. Click Tools → Presentation mode, click the slider bar to enable/disable Presentation mode and then click OK
