Open PPSX File

A PPSX file is a file format created by Microsoft PowerPoint, a famous presentation program that is part of the Microsoft Office Suite. This format is one of several file types associated with PowerPoint that contains completed visuals, audio, video, and text. The PPSX file extension is used for PowerPoint Slideshow files which, unlike other PowerPoint presentations, start as a slideshow when opened.

Opening PPSX Files

Opening a PPSX file is generally as easy as double-clicking the file, and the suitable program will automatically run it. The primary software for managing PPSX files is Microsoft PowerPoint. However, users who do not have access to PowerPoint have several alternatives they can use to open these files, including LibreOffice Impress and Apache OpenOffice Impress. Even more, providers have online platforms that allow you to open PPSX files without the need for downloading a dedicated program like Google Slides.

Converting PPSX Files

If you have issues opening PPSX files directly, the files can be converted to another format that's more universally accessible. There are many online converters like Convertio, where you upload your PPSX file, choose your desired format (for example, PDF), and download the converted file. In addition, Microsoft PowerPoint allows exporting PPSX files to other formats.

Creating PPSX Files

You can create PPSX files using Microsoft PowerPoint. When your presentation is complete, you can save your work as a PPSX file directly through the "Save As" option within PowerPoint. In addition, other programs compatible with PowerPoint, like the aforementioned LibreOffice Impress and Apache OpenOffice Impress, can also create PPSX files.

PPSX File Important Information

While PPSX files provide an easy way to view presentations exactly as they were meant to be seen, they have a downside. Changes cannot be made to PPSX files once they are saved in this format. You would need the original PowerPoint file to make changes. However, in terms of sharing a finished presentation that plays automatically, a PPSX file can be a great option.
