Annoying problem. can't open .pps or .ppt email attachments unless I save them first to my documents, then they open immediately and correctly. Checked file associations, everything looks correct. Thanks

If you are using PowerPoint Viewer (as opposed to the full PowerPoint software package) try:

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.
