File Types, File Menu, and Backstage View: File Types that Can be Opened in PowerPoint

Programs such as PowerPoint are a very significant part of our workflows not just because of their vast abilities but also because they can understand content from so many file formats. These include file types that PowerPoint can save and open. When you go and look at the file types that PowerPoint can open, you’ll find that the list of file types is not exactly the same as the ones that you save to. There are several omissions and additions compared to that list.

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.
