    I made a power point presentation in MS Office PowerPoint 2007. I do remember saving it in a folder on desktop, although it was saved as a PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation.
    After that I closed the PowerPoint program. When I looked for it right after closing the PowerPoint, I could not find it. I opened MS Office PowerPoint and looked for it in the recent files there but it was not present in the list.
    I clicked on the start menu and found it's shortcut in the context menu against MS PowerPoint Presentation (which shows the recent ppt files). I clicked on it but a prompt appeared which said, "Windows is searching for 'Presentation.ppt' . To locate file yourself, click browse"
    After a while, a prompt appeared which said,"The item 'Presentation.ppt' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly.

    Do you want to delete this shortcut?

    Now what should I do? I don't have the energy or time to work on it again. Please somebody help me. :'(

    Where did the short cut point to? Right click on it and choose Properties. It should show you where IT think it was!
    If you can remember the name you can try a program called Everything from http://www.voidtools.com/

    Also look under your personal folder in Win 7. C:\Users\youname etc.
