I have the following setup:
How can I share a Powerpoint presentation during a meeting with only the slides in full view mode on the TV (for all physical attendees in my room) and the Zoom window on my MacBook containing
I have tried two approaches so far - but both of them failed:
Am I missing something or doing something wrong? How can I achieve what I described above?
P.S. If you have a recommendation on a remote presenter that lets me both, change slides and mute/unmute, that would be great!

These are real-world problems, for sure. Application focus or the loss of can be a real pain.
I know you didn't share with us two computers but that would be the simplest and least expensive solution if you already own another computer to add to the mix. Just have the 2nd computer join the meeting with the sole purpose of sharing when that time comes. Plug your clicker or use the keyboard on that 2nd computer to advance your slides. Because that's all the 2nd computer is doing you will always reliably be able to advance the slides.
Trying to accomplish this all on single computer can be a challenge. Not impossible, but a challenge.
Other approaches could include...

Thank you for your suggestions and help!
Yes, this is what I have done in the past. Join the meeting on my iPad and use it to share slides. But it is not ideal as I always have to use another device which would otherwise be available for different things (e.g. note taking).
I am really wondering, if I am the only person requesting such functionality? To me my setup seems to be such a typical everyday scenario - sharing a presentation with both physical and online people that I am really baffled that Zoom does not provide any solution for it (I mean it would be as "easy" as simply having some button which allows to just output the shared virtual background to another screen - but maybe that is harder to implement than I imagine).
Thank you for the other solutions you provided (i.e. online slide control). I guess I enjoy having a physical control interface with real buttons especially when I am nervous (like on a remote presenter). Also, I would not want to keep a phone in my hands all the time making it look like I am about to answer a text or go on a call.
Another idea came to my mind: Do you know if there is a remote presenter which lets me advance slides and mute/unmute Zoom without pulling focus? I know that this is technically possible (e.g. when I push the play/pause function key on my MacBook, it will trigger the last played media without putting focus on the respective application like "Music" or "Chrome"). Even if there is no such remote available, I might be able to remap buttons (using something like Karabiner-Elements) in order to mute/unmute zoom without pulling application focus. If this was possible i might be able to go with my first approach. What do you think?
