Is PowerPoint Leaving Us Helpless?

Like many instructors, I often use PP during live-video instruction or to stress important "points" in classroom or other presentations.
I have faced big challenges using PP of late. Those challenges relate to how projectors in different places project slides. Among local programs in my area, if I click on a Web link on a slide, the URL opens right up. I can go between the Internet and my PP show. In two instances, however, the projector I used away from home required that I exit Show mode, refer to the Web site, and then go back to PP to open it in Show again. That really interferes with how smooth the presentation progresses. In a way, it feels like talking with hiccups!
Does anyone have suggestion as to how instructors can avoid that glitch while using projectors in their classrooms? Yes, I know that Prezi is an option, and I may just start switching to that if I can't find a solution.
I notice that I'm not the only one facing this issue on my MacBook Pro with PP2016. Others also report the problem.
Do others here face similar issues? The site above recommends different approaches, which in my view, don't really support having non-techie instructors deal with the problem. Ideas? Leecy
