Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation

PowerPoint is a presentation design software distributed by Microsoft. It allows users to create slide shows that may consist of images, text, video, and audio.

While PowerPoint is commonly used to create business presentations, many individuals also use the software to create slide shows that contain personal photographs, songs, and messages.

The .ppt extension is used by PowerPoint versions older than the 2007 edition of the software. Later versions of PowerPoint use the .pptx extension rather than the .ppt extension used by earlier editions of the software.
