Opening PPTM files

Did your computer fail to open a PPTM file? We explain what PPTM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PPTM files.

What is a PPTM file?

Files with the .pptm extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft PowerPoint presentation software. The PPTM files feature macro-enabled presentations that have been created by the software. The PPTM files contain a collection of presentation slides containing images, text, movies, sound effects and embedded macros. These files are similar to PPTX files, but PPTX files do not contain embedded macros. The PPTM file format is based on the Open XML document format introduced by Microsoft in 2007.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
