We’re going to show you how to get Microsoft PowerPoint for free and all you’re going to need is a free Microsoft account. This method is perfectly legitimate, but it’s something Microsoft tends to keep fairly quiet as it would like you to purchase a subscription to Office 365, which does come with some benefits.
The major downside of accessing PowerPoint via this method is that you can’t use it when you’re offline, but we do have a buying guide if you want to purchase a full version.
How to get Microsoft PowerPoint for Free
The first thing you’re going to need is a free Microsoft account. Make your way to the Microsoft Office website and make an account, or log into one that you already have.
Once you’ve logged in, you’ll find this screen waiting for you.
At the top, under the ‘Apps’ heading, you’ll find a wide range of Microsoft applications you can use for free.
These are all known as ‘Web Apps’, which are applications that run through your browser rather than being installed directly onto your computer. When you create a PowerPoint presentation here, it will be saved to your Microsoft OneDrive account which is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution - you will be able to download a presentation into your computer as well, should you want to.
As we mentioned earlier, the downside to this method is that you must have an internet connection to access this service.
If you do want a full version of Microsoft Office then take a look at our buying guide.
