Running Powerpoint with Windows 7

Does Windows 7 include Powerpoint. I can't find it but thought I had used it before.

PowerPoint is part of MS Office and not Windows.

PowerPoint comes with Microsoft Office and isn't part of Windows, not even Windows 7. Sorry to have to tell you that

Open Office or Libre Office have 'Impress' which is their equivalent presentation program to PowerPoint, and is free download and is certainly worth trying if you don't have PowerPoint.

Hope this helps you

Thanks both. I have Open Office, that tried to start the Powerpoint file, I'll try with Impress. Thanks.

If you just want to view PowerPoint and not create or edit then download PowerPoint viewer

Thanks, that's what I need.
