A PPT file is an editable slide show created by Microsoft PowerPoint or another presentation program, such as OpenOffice Impress or Apple Keynote. It may include formatted text, bullet points, images, movies, sound effects, and music. PPT files are commonly built from one of many templates included with the PowerPoint software, but may also be created from scratch.

PPT files are used for creating presentations in home, school, and business environments. The PPT file was introduced in 1987 with the release of PowerPoint and was saved in a binary file format. It was the primary file type used to save PowerPoint presentations until it was replaced in PowerPoint 2007 with the OpenXML .PPTX file format. Although the PPT file type was replaced by PPTX it is still supported by PowerPoint and many other presentation applications, such as Corel Presentations and Apple Pages.
You most likely will see the PPTX file more often than the PPT file. However, some users with older versions of PowerPoint may still save their presentations as PPT files. You may receive PPT files from friends, family members, or co-workers via email or download them from a website or cloud storage service. You can use PowerPoint to open the file or choose from a variety of other programs, including OpenOffice and ACD Systems Canvas.
