(This post, originally published in 2010, announced the availability of the PowerPoint 2010 Viewer. This post remains incredibly popular because so people find the Viewer to be a useful tool. We're republishing it so readers of our blog can find and use it, too.)
I’m excited to announce that our new PowerPoint Viewer is now available here for free download . By installing the PowerPoint Viewer, you can open and watch PowerPoint presentations in all formats, no matter what computer you’re using. We’ve revamped our viewer to display PowerPoint presentations, including those created in 2010, in full-fidelity. This means that all the new transitions, videos, and effects will appear and behave exactly like they do in PowerPoint 2010.
In order to display presentations with such high quality, you’ll need to install the PowerPoint 2010 Viewer on your computer. This is a departure from previous viewers, which run as standalone files.
The Viewer has always been one of our most popular downloads (not just for PowerPoint, but for all of Microsoft), and we’ll be continuing to work on it and update it for our customers.
Please let us know via comments about how you’re using the Viewer and any questions or problems you have.
Want to download the new Viewer? Here’s the link again.

Update: We’ve received a number of questions about why the PowerPoint 2010 Viewer requires installation, rather than being a no-installation .EXE that can be burned to CDs. Our number one goal is to keep your computers safe and secure; the only way for us to ensure that the PowerPoint Viewer is always up-to-date and secure is by requiring installation, which enables the application to receive future security updates. If you’d like a way to view PowerPoint presentations and share them with others without downloading any software, we recommend using the PowerPoint Web App.
O pawor point é muito loko e dahora
won't loop. don't download, avoid garbage
Is there software that will work on a Macbook? Thanks.
Hey Michael, We recommend that you use the PowerPoint Web App on SkyDrive (www.skydrive.com) to view presentations if you don’t have PowerPoint Mac installed. -Chris
I tried adding the /F switch in the registry and while it did force the slide show to full screen, it will not loop. I ended up installing the full version of Office 2010. It really is a shame I had to use a licenst for the full version just to run a looping show on a campus display.
hello power point team I was thing is there any way to just download the power point thing.I don't really care if you can download a power point 2007 or lower,i am just wondering.I really want to download the power point instead of buying the power point because i am still at school in year six and my computer does not have it.So it is bad if I can't make a power point for my class or anything else.I hope that you would reply to my comment.
@hello, We reccomend that you use the PowerPoint Web App to author presentations if you aren't able to purchase a copy (go to www.skydrive.com to use it). You can also download a free trial at office.com if you want to check out the full product. -Chris
I've just spent quite a bit of time creating an .exe file including a 2007 viewer only to find out it doesn't allow embedded files to open. Will the 2010 viewer allow people to whom I send presentations open embedded files (.xls; .pdf; etc.) Thanks!
Hey Matt, You'll need Adobe Reader to view .pdf files, and Excel to view .xls files. Are those apps installed on the system? -Chris
They're installed on my system. But, they're not part of the .exe. The people I'm sending to have .pdf and .xls abilities on their systems as well. - Thanks.
Thanks for releasing it so soon. Thanks again.:)
Please release standalone!!! need it for school!!!!!
"Powerpoint 2010 Viewer Standlone please! ... :\ ... or maybe Within Powerpoint save the whole thing as a Runtime (exe)! I've been waiting so long for that." Ooh! I'd love that...
Hi, Has anybody solved the bug with new 2010 player? If i use the following command line switch argument to start the Player in Full Screen and start playing "myPPT" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\PPTVIEW.EXE" /F "C:\myPPT.ppx" The player works fine but DOES NOT LOOP the Power Point presentation even though this option was enables in the presentation when it was created, this works fine in the old 2007 viewer. If i do away with the command line switch argument and start the viewer normally pointing it to a specific file then use the mouse to select full screen it works fine, but this is no solution as I need the automation of the command line switch arguments.
Hi I am trying to downland word point it is not working?
