Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation application from the Microsoft Office product suite. It is used to create presentations for business proposals, school/college project reports, e-learning tutorial content, etc. It is used extensively by students, business professionals, sales executives, corporate trainers, etc. It can make the presenter explain the presentation to the audience in a quite interesting manner. To make the presentation highly interactive, you can use text, colors, images, audio/video files, WordArt objects, animations, etc. Sometimes the presentation may get corrupt and, thus, inaccessible. There could be various reasons for such behavior such as virus infections, human errors, power fluctuations, abrupt system shutdown, etc. In such cases, you should take appropriate corrective measures to resolve the issue. However, if you are unable to do so then you should use a third-party powerpoint repair application to recover PowerPoint file.
