I have a new Dell XPS13 running Windows 10. When I try to display a LibreOffice presentation, the slideshow is corrupted. I get two half-screens. The attached image shows what happens.

Corrupted slideshow

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

Please let me know if you need any more information.

I have just got a Dell XPS13 and have the same problem.

My external screen is attached through the Dell DA200 adaptor (via USB 3 port).

Clone and extended desktops work fine for Windows 10, but Libreooffice slideshow is the same as Dave has shown.

The answer is to disable hardware acceleration in LIbreoffice.

Go to Tools/Options and select Libreoffice/View.

Under Graphics Output deselect Use Hardware Acceleration.

I had a similar problem on the Surface Pro 4. This solution worked perfectly.
