    Convert .PPS to .PPT (PowerPoint 2002)

    I received an attachment in Outlook 2002. It is a PowerPoint file with a .PPS extension. I want to save it and convert it to a .PPT extension. How?

    Easiest: change the extension from .pps to .ppt in Windows Explorer.

    Slighly more work: start PowerPoint. Open the .pps file. Save it as .ppt.

    Hans,
    I have seen several PPS files that you can NOT change them to PPT type. Even if you do get the extension changed, the file is still a PPS type and you can NOT edit them.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Any chance those are PPT 2002 files with a password, Dave? Otherwise, you should be able to edit a PPS with no problems, even if you don't change the extension. Usually, opening a PPS file using Hans's technique (open PPT, then File/Open and navigate to the PPS file) allows you to edit it to your heart's content.

    Echo,
    You are correct, they are passworded and can only be opened as a "pps" and can not be saved as "ppt".
