File extension .PPTM
|Microsoft PowerPoint 2007/2010 Macro-enabled Open XML Presentation Format||Microsoft||Data Files|
PPTM ( .PPTM) stands for PowerPoint Open XML Macro-Enabled Presentation and is a presentation file created with versions of Microsoft PowerPoint that utilize XML coding. This file extension is similar to the PPTX format, but the main difference is that it has support for macro coding.
Background on Microsoft PowerPoint
Headquartered in Redmond, Washington Microsoft Corporation was founded in 1975 and according to Forbes is one of the largest, most successful tech companies of all time. Microsoft has been known for its many innovative products including Microsoft PowerPoint, a presentation program used to create visual slides for conferences and business presentations. It was first released in 1990 after MS developed its revolutionary graphical user interface. Over the years, MS PowerPoint has drastically evolved and now offers many features and tools, including items like animation, 3D models, advanced multimedia and graphing tools (among others), allowing users to create complex presentations.
Technical Details and Similar File Extensions
The PPTM format is based on Open XML which is an open source file type. It is used for presentations composed of various text styles, images, objects, charts, tables and other content. The file can include macros which enable users to automate certain tasks by running VBA (Visual Basic for Application) code. These macros are saved outside of the presentation but are referenced when the presentation is opened with MS PowerPoint. Some of the similar file extensions include POTM,.PPTX.,.POTX. and.PPS.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PPTM) 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 .PPTM 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 .PPTM 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 .PPTM 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 .PPTM extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PPTM file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PPTM 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 .PPTM file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PPTM file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PPTM file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
