What is a PPTX file?

A .PPTX file is a PowerPoint Open XML Format presentation file.

The PPTX file extension is given to Microsoft PowerPoint files created in PowerPoint versions 2007 and later. Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation software that allows users to create slide shows containing pictures, text, music, and video. The PowerPoint program is included in the Microsoft Office Suite.

Earlier versions of Microsoft PowerPoint create files using the .ppt file extension. Later versions of PowerPoint assign the .pptx extension because they use the Open XML format. This format allows PowerPoint files to be compressed into smaller sizes, making it easier to distribute the files online and taking up less drive space on a user's computer.
