power point

  Queensferry 11:06 19 Dec 2008

I receive emails with the .pps ending. My computer advises me to go into control panel, set associatons and set up a programme to open these. On my list of programmes in my computer I apparently have power point presentations 2003 but I still can't open .pps files. Can anyone tell me how to create an associaton?

You need to create an association between PowerPoint and the files.

Start; Run and type regedit.

Navigate to:


There will be two sub-keys by default (namely Show and Print). Select the sub-key named Show and rename it to Open.

Quit Registry Editor.

For safety before editing the registry do a system restore.

You can also try saving the file, the right clicking on it and the select open with and the click on choose program and select PowerPoint. You may have to browse to the Powerpoint exe file.
