    Starting in Slide Show view

    Sorry if this has been covered a million times so far, but how do you make Powerpoint start with the slide show immediately when you open it. I want to send an attachment with an email and for the full effect I want the slide show to immediately start for the recipient when it is opened up.

    Just save the PowerPoint file as a PowerPoint Show (.pps) - when they double click on it, it will run automatically as long as they have PowerPoint on their system.

    Lovely! It's funny how we sometimes don't look at the other options of how to save things.

    Thanks a lot, Holly.

    If you've got a lot to change, don't do the open/save as thing but try just renaming them - windows explorer, dos prompt or vba code - as this works the other way from pps to ppt.

    Or, better yet, rather than going through the open/save as routine every time you change your PPT file, just save the file as a regular, ol' everyday PowerPoint file. Then, when you want to show it, right click on the file and select "Show" from the contect menu that pops up.
