PPS Document Format

PPS Converter

PPS files are Microsoft PowerPoint Show files, which are used for playing presentations but not editing them. You can also record narration into a PowerPoint Show file. Newer versions of Microsoft PowerPoint will save into PPSX as standard, although you can choose to save files as the older PPS format instead. PowerPoint is available as part of the Microsoft Office suite on an annual or monthly subscription.

You can open a PPS file by double-clicking on the file. The presentation will then automatically play in full screen, either on a timer or a click, depending on how it’s been set up. To open a PPS file for editing, you would need to run the PowerPoint program first, and then open the PowerPoint Show file you want to change. You can then save it back into PPS format, or into the editable PPT or PPTX format.

PPT Document Format

PPT Converter

Microsoft developed the PPT format for PowerPoint, which is mostly used for creating and editing presentations. PPT files normally comprise slides of text, images and animations that can play as timed or manually controlled slideshows. Users can build presentations from scratch or use an online or company corporate template. PowerPoint is the most widely used format for presentations in both educational and work settings. It can also be used for creating reports, which users often save or print as a PDF.

Since 2007, PPTX has been Microsoft’s standard file format for PowerPoint. However, even if you have a newer version of the program, you can still use it to open older PPT files, and also to save presentations into PPT format. PowerPoint is part of the Microsoft Office suite, but some other programs, like LibreOffice, Apple Keynote or Google Slides, can also open both PPT and PPTX files.

PPS and PPT are both Microsoft PowerPoint files, but they are different. PPS are PowerPoint Show files for delivering presentations, and PPT files are the editable version of the presentation.

PPS and PPT are different file types: a PPS file is the slideshow of a presentation, whereas a PPT file is the editable presentation itself. It’s easy to convert between them using PowerPoint, file conversion apps or online tools like Zamzar.

To convert from PPS to PPT using Microsoft Office, you will need to open the PPS show in PowerPoint itself. This will open an editable version of the file that you can then save as a PPT or PPTX file.

You can then download your new file.

To convert files using MS Office, you will need to open individual PPS files within PowerPoint rather than from your file manager folders. You can then save the file as a PPT file.

A PPS file is a PowerPoint Show file, which means it’s designed to play presentations as a slideshow, rather than for editing of the presentation. To edit the file, you will need to either open the PPS file within PowerPoint itself or convert it into PPT or PPTX format first. You can convert it by opening the file in PowerPoint and saving it as a PPT/PPTX file, or by using a software-based or online file converter like Zamzar. If you use an online tool like Zamzar, you can also convert multiple files at once. Just upload your PPS files to Zamzar’s website, select to convert them into PPT or PPTX format, and then download the converted files.
