How can I Email A Powerpoint slide ? I got a powerpoint slide through email – how can I view / see it ?

Recently one of my reader had a query. He had a made a PowerPoint and sent it across to few of his friends. While some could successfully download and view the presentation, a few others had problems viewing the downloaded presentation. The reader was curious to know how to make the PowerPoint presentation everyone’s computer friendly 🙂 .

Well the problem was, some of those friends who could successfully open the PowerPoint presentation had some version of Microsoft office installed on their system and quite obvious that they were on Windows operating system.

Those who could not open the presentation were either on some other OS or did not have Microsoft office installed on their system.

The solution for this is quite simple. Microsoft has a free stand alone PowerPoint player. This can be attached in the mail or even better a download link can be added. The link is :

Even better solution is to ask them to download Open Office suite, which is a replacement for most of Microsoft office products and the best part is it comes with GPL license.

Users can play Microsoft PowerPoint with OpenOffice.
