Open PPS File – What is and How to View – Format and Programs

File type: PowerPoint Slide Show


What is

The PPS file extension is used in the PPS files created, opened, and modified using the Microsoft Power Point application.

The Microsoft Power Point application is to display digital slides in educational and business presentations. It is also commonly to display picture slideshows sent and received via email.

The PPS files may contain a combination of pictures, movies, and texts. Because of its formal presentation, PowerPoint is now the standard way of showing and displaying slides.

The PPS files also contain pieces of information about how the presentation of the slideshow should be displayed.
These include the transition effects between the slides. The Microsoft PowerPoint application also saves presentations using other file formats such as .pot (template), .ppt (presentation), or .pptx (Microsoft PowerPoint 2007).
It is also significant to note that there is no difference between PPS and PPT files. Files saved in these two formats may be renamed alternately and they will still work.
