Powerpoint 2010 Tip - Laser Pointer

I am tired of watching presenters show up without a laser pointer and then fumble around trying to emphasis something on the screen.  I am amazed at how many didn't realize that you can turn your mouse into a "laser pointer" during a presentation.

HOLD DOWN [CTRL] + [LMB]
It's ugly, but it works.  You can even change the color of the "laser."
See the ugly red circle?
