    My friend occasionally sends me PowerPoint document files (file extension .pps) which I am unable to open. I invariably get a message telling me "Windows cannot open this file." (I am using Windows XP Professional.)

    Can someone tell me what I have to do in order to be able to open PowerPoint files?

    Thank you,
    Bill

    You can download the free PowerPoint viewer on this Microsoft page. Link to the viewer download is on the right.
