File Extension PPS

File Extension PPS stands for 'Power Point Slide Show'. It is a data file which can contain a combination of text, pictures and even movies. It can be better defined as a digital presentation made of different slides displayed in successive sequences similar to those in old slide projectors. The .PPS file also holds information on how the presentation is displayed, such as the transition effects between slides.

The file extension .PPS is closely identified with the software application 'Microsoft Power Point'. Power Point is an application using which one can create presentations or view them as slide shows, generate graphics and other materials for use in business and educational settings. However, one of its drawbacks is that standard PowerPoint presentations can't be viewed without this software. This makes sharing presentations difficult.

This is where the Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer and associated .PPS files come into play. .PPS file cannot be edited even with standard copies of PowerPoint since they are an output-only format, much like Portable Document Format (.PDF) or PostScript (.PS) files.

There is no real difference between a .PPS and a .PPT file. You can even rename the extension and they'll still work. The difference lies in how PowerPoint treats the files, a .PPT file will instruct PowerPoint to open the file in 'edit mode' whereas a .PPS file indicates that the slideshow should be opened in 'Play mode'.

There are many ways to open file with specific file extension. There could be also multiple applications which you can use to open PPS file. To learn more about it open File Extension PPS . Also you can try using hex or text editors like HexView or Notepad++ to open pps files.
