Share and Prepare: Check Compatibility in PowerPoint

You might have experienced this scenario: you have created a presentation within PowerPoint 2016, but you are not sure whether your client, boss, friend, or colleague, who has an earlier version of PowerPoint will be able to view and edit this presentation using the same options that you have used? And, if you save this presentation as a file compatible with an earlier version of PowerPoint, there are chances that you could lose some attributes of the presentation that are not available in previous versions. Or worse, your editable content could just change to flat, non-editable pictures!
