Using MS Powerpoint Files

Page updated 26 Nov 2007

Information about using the MS Powerpoint files available on this web site.

MS Powerpoint Format

Files in MS Powerpoint format are occasionally provided in order to allow users to access the presentation slides that have been used by Guest Lecturers or at Treasury seminars.

We usually provide MS Powerpoint slides in PDF format as an alternative.

Viewing MS Powerpoint Files

Your browser will generally prompt you with a message asking you to Open or Save the MS Powerpoint file. Choose Open if you want to view the Powerpoint file immediately.

Depending on how your browser is configured, the MS Powerpoint file will open inside the browser window or inside a separate MS Powerpoint window.

Once the MS Powerpoint file has opened in your browser you will generally be able to navigate through the MS Powerpoint slideshow using your keyboard's arrow keys (left to go back, right to go forward).  You may have to use the browser's Back button to return to the Treasury web site.

Printing MS Powerpoint Files

may If you want to print a large MS Powerpoint file it is best to save it to your computer first, rather than print it directly from the Treasury web site. Large MS Powerpoint files require a lot of printer memory to print across the internet.
