PowerPoint submits been available in 2 formats: PPTX files are editable PowerPoint presentations and PPSX files are a view-only format planned for presentations. You can edit a PPSX file, however you must initially convert it back to a PPTX format.
Altering the File Extension
Before trying anything else, it’s always worth seeing if you can just alter the file extension. This works often, although it depends on the variation of Office you and your colleagues are utilizing.
To alter the file extension, right-click the file and pick “Rename.”
Change the file extension (if it exists in the file name) from.ppsx to.pptx.
Double-click the file to open as normal in PowerPoint.
In our case, that didn’t work. The file still opens as a PPSX presentation. We’ll move on and attempt another method.
Conserving the File as a PPTX
PowerPoint can transform a PPSX file to a PPTX one. Here’s how.
First, open “PowerPoint” and choose File > > Open to find the file you want to edit.
Go to File > > Save As to conserve the file.
From the drop-down menu on top right, pick “PowerPoint Presentation (*. pptx)” to conserve the file as an editable file you can share with coworkers. Be sure to strike the “Save” button when you’re done.
Now, when associates click to open the file, they’ll be taken to the PowerPoint editor to make quick edits and modifications.
