If you’d like to remove the audio icon when playing a PowerPoint presentation, it’s easy to do. This holds true for both the Windows and Mac desktop versions as well as in PowerPoint on the web. By hiding this symbol, it won’t be displayed if you’ve set an audio clip to play automatically or run in the background.
