PPT files are presentations created with Microsoft PowerPoint versions, 1997-2003. PowerPoint was released by Microsoft in 1990 and is currently the most popular application for developing presentations and for putting together commercial and non-commercial slideshows.

PowerPoint presentations are made of individual pages also known as “slides” which can contain text, videos, pictures, music, sound effects, charts and other graphic objects. All elements can be arranged freely within each page.

Unlike PowerPoint slideshows, finished PowerPoint presentations are fully editable. They can be opened and edited with PowerPoint or simply showcased with PowerPoint Viewer. Starting with version 2007 of PowerPoint, the PPT file format was replaced with the PPTX Open XML format.
