Have you encountered a problem with a PPTHTML file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a PPTHTML file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your PPTHTML file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


Files ending in PPTHTML are HTML files created by earlier versions of Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint, the standard presentation software from Microsoft Corporation, usually stores presentations (slideshow) as a ppt file. To view his documents in a browser, the user can save his document as a PPTHTML file.

This file then contains normal HTML source code similar to an html file. The source code is created in such a way that the browser displays the document as much as PowerPoint does.

The PPTHTML format is no longer supported by Microsoft. Documents that should be published on the Web should therefore be saved as an mhtml or mht file.

Newer versions of Microsoft Word save HTML code as an html file.

How to open a PPTHTML file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the PPTHTML file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a PPTHTML file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support PPTHTML files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a PPTHTML file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all PPTHTML files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with PPTHTML there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the PPTHTML file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the PPTHTML file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
