How do I save a presentation which will open automatically as a slideshow and not open in Powerpoint. Thanks.

Save it as a .pps Powerpoint Slide Show (File > Save As).

Hmmm, I did that but when I click it to run it, it just opens in Powerpoint again? Also, its icon is different. Although it's a .pps file, the icon is the Powerpoint icon and not the presentation icon which is a little blue "up" arrow pointing to a screen.

It is bound to open in Powerpoint (or Powerpoint Viewer) but doesn't it open as a slide show?

Oooops, must be tired. Just saw there are lots more possibilities in the "save as" options. Never saw the scroll down arrow....duhhhh. Thanks VoG™
