When creating Microsoft PowerPoint presentations for work or school, it's often necessary to collaborate with others on your projects.
Thankfully, it's easy to share a PowerPoint presentation no matter what version you use. The process looks fairly similar on both Mac and PC programs, as well as on the online version that can be accessed from any web browser. The online option is helpful if you don't have the Microsoft Office program downloaded to your desktop.
For all of these options, you can add a collaborator (which operates similarly to sharing Google Slides) or opt to send your file as a presentation or PDF via email. There are also alternative methods, such as sending via social media.
Here's how to share a presentation.

How to share a PowerPoint presentation on a PC
Sharing a presentation on the PC version of PowerPoint should look similar on most computer types. The following steps and accompanying photos detail the process on a Samsung Chromebook.
1. Open the PowerPoint presentation you wish to share on your PC.
2. Click the "Share" symbol in the upper right hand corner of the screen. This should give you the option to share either the full document or just the current slide.
If you prefer to add a collaborator instead (similar to Google Slides functions), you will need to click the orange button to save a copy of the file to your OneDrive.
3. Choose how you'd like to share the document or slide as an attachment. You can choose to send an email via Outlook or as a message via Zoom, for example.
