Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation (Legacy) (.ppt)

PPT is a file format used by Microsoft PowerPoint for storing presentation data. This format is capable of saving presentations that contain a wide range of elements, including slides, text, shapes, animations, audio and video clips, and embedded objects. PPT files can be opened and edited using Microsoft PowerPoint, as well as other presentation software such as WPS Office Presentation and Google Slides.

The PPT format was first introduced with the release of Microsoft PowerPoint in 1987. It remained the default file format for saving presentations in PowerPoint until the release of Microsoft Office 2007 when it was replaced by the PPTX format. Despite this change, PPT files remain widely used and can be opened by all versions of PowerPoint.

In addition to being opened and edited using presentation software, PPT files can also be converted into other file formats such as PDF, MP4, and others. This can be done using programs like Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Vertopal, allowing for greater flexibility and compatibility when sharing presentations with others who may not have access to Microsoft PowerPoint.

In summary, the PPT format is a versatile and widely used file format for storing and sharing presentation data. It is supported by a range of presentation software programs and can be easily converted into other file formats for greater compatibility.
