How to Convert PPS to PPT?
Someone say you can directly change the file extension “.pps” to “.ppt”, but it doesn’t always work, especially on PowerPoint 2007 and later, when PowerPoint formats have been upgraded to PPTX, PPSX, etc.
A general way, which works on all PowerPoint versions, to convert PPS to PPT format is actually rather simple. Make sure the PPS PowerPoint file is saved on a location you can easily find.
Now open Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint is usually found by accessing the “Start” menu and selecting “All Programs“, and then the “Microsoft Office” folder.
In PowerPoint, go to the “File” menu and select “Open” from the drop-down list. Then browse to the location of the saved PPS file and open it in PowerPoint program.
Then you will see the PPS file be opened just like any other PPT file. You can edit it now, change picture, insert music or jump to any slide, etc.
Now it’s only one step ahead to convert PPS to PPT format. Go to “File” > “Save As” and choose “PowerPoint Presentation” as output format in the pop up window. Click “Save” button and the original PPS file has now been saved to your computer as a PPT file.
