Open and edit a .ppsx in MS PowerPoint

Recently a friend of mine was struggling to open a .ppsx file in MS PowerPoint. He wanted to edit some slides of the presentation but the sender of the file had sent a .ppsx instead of a .pptx.

If you have never opened a .ppsx (PowerPoint Show) file in MS PowerPoint 2007 then you might like to read on.


The solution is pretty simple. Open MS PowerPoint and then Go to Open --> Choose the .ppsx file. But in his case this was not working for some strange reason. So we solved the problem thus:




Step-1
Open MS PowerPoint

Step-2

Go to the windows folder where the file has been saved and drag the .ppsx file inside MS PowerPoint

Step-3

Drop it on the top (not on the slide)



Any faster way than this, drop in a comment.
