How-To: Make a PowerPoint Presentation Versatile

When you have to open your PowerPoint presentation on a different computer to show it or present it there is big risk that it will not open up. This will be do to the fact that it wasn’t saved the right way to make it compatible with other versions or simply because that computer doesn’t have PowerPoint.

Once you are done with making the PowerPoint presentation, save the file regularly as you do with e (.ppt) extension in case you need to make changes. Then go to File > Save As and save it as a PowerPoint Show, a (.pps) extension. Now you will be able to open the PowerPoint Show file from any computer without needing PowerPoint to view the presentation.

The drawbacks, the PowerPoint Show file will not allow you to make changes to the slides so you need to be sure that it’s perfect before saving it in that format. Always keep it in a presentation format (.ppt) so you will be able to make changes to the slides.
