How can I view a PPS file?

Monday Greetings Clif!

 

I am taking you up on your offer re: asking questions. I had a problem last month with my pc. In order to get it operational again, the tech. stripped it down to the bare bones. I lost everything.

 

I have downloaded Adobe Reader and a few other things but cannot find the appropriate pps download to view what is shared with me. I went to MSN and what I downloaded was not what I was seeking. Any ideas?

 

Thanking you in advance, I am,

Hi Gini,

 

It's always nice to hear from my readers. I think I understand what you are asking about. You can't open up PPS applications, right?

 

Well, if that's the case, I know the answer, but I'll also show you how to find the answer yourself when you run into a similar situation in the future.

 

1. Go to http://filext.com

2. Search for PPS

3. See what programs show up in the "Associated Links"

 

In this case, Filext dot com tells us that this is a PowerPoint Slideshow file and the Associated links tells us that XNView will view it. I like XNView, which is a free file viewer, but I had no idea it could handle PPS files.

I would have recommended the free Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer.

So, now you have two choices for viewing PPS files. Just remember FILEXT.com if you find file types you can't open.

 

Have fun!
