Desktop versions of PowerPoint let you choose where you want to save your files. They also prompt you to save your files if you close PowerPoint without saving your changes. Well, there is no such Save option within PowerPoint for iPad. Why? That’s because most of the time, PowerPoint on the iPad will continuously auto-save your file as you make changes. It will also push these updated, saved versions to your cloud location.

So essentially you open a file, make changes, and then open a second file. You may not be aware, but the first file is saved on its own when you open the second file! Would you like a more conventional approach where you are prompted to save your file? You can do that by turning off the AutoSave option that is enabled by default.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
