Ok, you received this file. You opened it and it runs in full screen mode. You found some details that are inappropriate and you want to make changes. But how? everytime you open, it goes on full screen slide show.
.pps is the extension file format of a powerpoint show file. It intends to make the presentation hassle-free, removing all the menus and toolbars of the microsoft powerpoint application. It is just like a compiled program once clicked it will directly do its intended function.
Heres how you can modify the content of a .pps file.
Assuming that you have this powerpoint show file ”MarketingSlides.pps”
1. You should change or rename the extension of the file from .pps to .ppt. (Note: To display the file extensions of file types, in Windows Explorer go to Tools -> Folder Options -> View and uncheck the “Hide file extensions of known file types” checkbox; in windows 7, it’s in the control panel->appearance and personalization->folder options)
2. The “MarketingSlides.pps” should be made “MarketingSlides.ppt”
3. Clicking the “MarketingSlides.ppt” file will open it in the PowerPoint environment and can be easily edited.
This simple tip can also be applied the other way around if you want to make your PowerPoint Presentation document (.ppt) to a PowerPoint Show file (.pps).
**the procedure is not applicable in Microsoft Powerpoint 2007 (.ppsx).
