File extension .PPSX
|Microsoft PowerPoint 2007/2010 Open XML Complete Slide Show Format
PPSX is the .PPSX filename extension used for PowerPoint Open XML Slide Show files created with Microsoft PowerPoint. PPSX files are just ZIP-compressed archives of XML and other files like multimedia and macro code. This Presentation format has replaced previous PowerPoint 97-2003 presentation versions. It was first introduced in Microsoft Office 2007 and is the default presentation format for MS Office 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019.
The XML file within the ZIP container can be opened and edited in any text editor, such as Notepad++ although not all content from the PPSX file will be properly displayed in a text editor. This format provides higher quality graphics than the older PowerPoint 97-2003 version, which used a binary file format. It also allows the user to set password protection to open the document, as well as restricting editing functions in order to protect the content. Other similar file extensions are.PPT (Powerpoint 97-2003),.POT (Powerpoint Template) or.POTX (Powerpoint Open XML Template).
Programs for WINDOWS system
Programs for LINUX system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PPSX) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PPSX extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PPSX file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PPSX extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PPSX extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PPSX file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PPSX file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PPSX file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PPSX file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PPSX file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
