But in case you just received a Powerpoint PPT file, and you do not have MS Office and Microsoft Power Point installed onto your computer, then there is nothing to worry about. Microsoft provides a useful utility called PowerPoint Viewer to let you open PPT files with MS Office.
There is nothing new to it, but today, Microsoft has allowed opening of created even in Microsoft Office 2010. Once you have installed this download, from the Start menu under All Programs, open Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer.
This download works with presentations created in the following Microsoft Office programs:
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
- Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007
- Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2002
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2000
- Microsoft PowerPoint 97
Note: PowerPoint Viewer registers with the .ppt, .pptx, .pptm, .pot, .potx, .potm, .pps, .ppsx and .ppsm file extensions only if a version of PowerPoint is not installed on your computer. If registered, double-clicking on these file types will launch PowerPoint Viewer.
