When you need to distribute a presentation, you can use the Internet.  Instead of requiring that the visitor to have PowerPoint and to download the presentation, you can save the presentation as multiple slides that can be viewed directly from the web browser.

Save as HTML

1.  Save your presentation (as a regular PowerPoint file).

2.  Click the File menu and click Save as a Web Page...

3.  Select the directory to save the pages in.  PowerPoint will create many other files to go along with this page, so we recommend that you create a new folder (directory) to place these files in.

4.  Enter a descriptive file name for the web page.  

Tip: Do NOT put spaces in the file name.  Some web servers and/or browsers don't accept file names with spaces in them.  If you need a space, substitute with an underscore (_) instead.  Also, if you will be placing this presentation on a UNIX Server (the most common web server), remember that the file name is case-sensitive ("computer" is not the same as "COMPUTER").  Typically just keep the file name lowercase.

5.  Click the Change Title... button.

6.  Enter a title for this presentation.  Please Note:  The title you enter here will be displayed in the web browser's title bar at the top of the screen.

7.  Click the Save button.

Note: Depending on the size of your presentation, it may take a while to create the web pages.  Don't do anything while they are being created.

8.  When publishing the files to your web server, DO NOT change any file names.  Also, keep the directory structure as is.  Changing either of these will cause the presentation not to function properly or not function at all.

Tip: When you want to create a web page with a hyperlink to the presentation's start page, link to the page created in the root directory.  (The only page in the directory you specified in Step 3.)
