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 However, even if you have a newer version of the program, you can still use it to open older PPT files, and also to save presentations into PPT format.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.

DOCX Document Format

DOCX Converter

The DOCX format has been the standard format for Microsoft Word documents since 2007, replacing DOC. Microsoft Word is used widely in homes, workplaces and educational settings to create formatted text documents like reports, letters or resumes. As well as text, DOCX files can include pictures, tables, charts and embedded media, or can be an editable template.

The DOCX format has some advantages over DOC, including typically smaller file sizes and better security. DOCX is an Office Open XML file, making it easier to open DOCX files in other programs like LibreOffice, Google Docs or Apple Pages, with fewer compatibility issues. Word is part of Microsoft Office’s paid software application and is also available with an Office 365 online subscription. Microsoft Office was designed for Windows, but you can install Office apps on other operating systems. Microsoft also has a basic free ‘Word for the web’ programme for online Microsoft account holders.

Zamzar and other online file conversion tools are a quick way to convert PPT to DOCX. Just upload a PPT file to Zamzar’s website, click to convert it into DOCX format, and then download the converted file. The new document will have the same dimensions as your original presentation. If you don’t need to keep the layout and you have access to Microsoft Office, you can also open a PPT file with that and use the ‘Export’ feature to create DOCX handouts or make an RTF file that you can open in Word. It’s also possible to copy content from PPT slides to paste into a Word document.

You can open a PPT file in Word if you convert it first using PowerPoint or a file converter such as Zamzar. You can save the content, but not the layout, by using the ‘Export’ function in an open PowerPoint document. Either create a Word handout of your presentation or save it as an RTF file, which you can then open in Word.

Another way is to install file conversion software, but with Zamzar’s website, it’s also possible to convert files online without extra applications. Just upload your PPT, convert it, and then download a Word file that you can open on your device.

If you have an Office 365 subscription, you can also use the ‘Export’ function to create Word handouts of your presentation, or to create a Rich Text Format (RTF) file.

Alternatively, you can open a PowerPoint file with an open-source program like LibreOffice.
