File Linkage Problem

  Legslip 16:45 15 Apr 2011

My pal is getting Emails in Out. Xpress OK but some have pps attachments which he cannot open when he clicks on them. I save the files to My Docs and then go to 'Open With' and use Powerpoint Viewer and tick 'always open this type of file etc'. However, further pps emails still fail to open if we click on the pps file. Any ideas? Win XP

what error message do you get when you try and open it? does it only effect .pps files?

powerpoint files are usually .ppt files. Anyway go to: My documents > TOOLS > Folder Options: Click the File Types Tab at the top >

Scroll through the list until .pps comes up;

highlight the file type and click change;

choose the application to use to open it and it should work.
