Open your PowerPoint Presentation. Next, click ""File - Save As" and scoll until you find .PPS (or .PPSX) file extension. This makes your presentation a PowerPoint Show only and you can save it to your desktop or any folder. Then justopen the new filek on it goes right into presentation mode, not PowerPoint editing mode. Click Esc to exit the slideshow.
