Apple Presentation Software does everything for you when you convert a PowerPoint presentation to Keynote. Doing the opposite, however, requires a few extra steps – we go through them!
First, double-click the Keynote presentation you want to convert in Keynote, then click “File”; at the top left.
In the drop-down menu that appears, hover over “Export to”. Click “PowerPoint” in the submenu that appears.
You will now come to the “PowerPoint” tab in the “Export your presentation” window. There are a few options you can choose from here, including requiring your recipient to use a password to open a presentation. This is a good idea if the presentation contains sensitive information, such as a roadmap for the company.
Click the “Format:” drop-down menu to change your PowerPoint file to “.pptx” or “.ppt”, and then click “Next.”
Then give your presentation a name, select a location to save the file, and then click “Export.”
Your Keynote presentation will now be converted to a Microsoft PowerPoint file. To ensure that it has been properly converted before sending it out, locate the document and then right-click on it. Click “Get Information” in the menu that appears.
In the “General” section (next to “Type:”), you can check the file type to ensure that it was converted successfully.
