What is Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer?

The Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer is a free application downloadable from the Microsoft Office website that lets you view Powerpoint presentations – even locked and password-protected ones – without having the retail version of Powerpoint installed. Take note that this application is only a viewer, and thus you cannot edit them using this program; you must have the full version of Powerpoint to do this.

Microsoft Powerpoint, a presentation software, is one of the Microsoft Office productivity suite's three cornerstones. One of the founding applications includes Microsoft Word (a word processor) and Microsoft Excel (a spreadsheet program). Powerpoint’s concept revolves around the idea of “slides.” These are individual, and sometimes independent pages, which are anchored on the idea of a slide projector; in effect, Powerpoint is a digital version of this device, and it can create the slides via a combination of text, graphics, effects, sounds, and sometimes even video clips or animated images. These elements are considered as discrete components of a slide and can be arranged freely. However, Powerpoint enforces a certain style or rules to the arrangement of a slide, called a template. Once finished, the presentation can be saved and “presented” to an audience; this usually employs a video projector or streamed through the Internet.
