Convert pps to ppt?
Here we have the question and answers to the question posed by some of our forum members.
Rather than double clicking on the pps file, go into PowerPoint and then File> Open and then open the file.
As long as it has not been protected you should be able to open and edit it.
You can also right click the pps icon and choose “NEW”
When you save as check out the “Tools” dropdown. It’s in a different place in 2003 / 2007 but you should find it easily
Ignore the warning message when you change the extension, .ppt amd .pps are identical files
IMHO it is much safer to open PowerPoint > File Open (the .pps) and then resave as a .ppt I have seen many people produce filename.pps.ppt files by mistake.
Also in version 2007 just changing the name will NOT work. although the .ppsx and .pptx are the same there’s a security check built in which checks the extension against the actual file type and it will fail. The File open > resave method above will still work.
