A PowerPoint Template is a file that can contain commonly used settings to make producing future PowerPoint Presentations and Shows easier. POTX PowerPoint Templates are different than the POT version in that they use the Microsoft Office Open XML format.
The extension allows you to save audiovisual and textual information as a presentation or a slide show. Is used solely for viewing the created presentation and has no editing capabilities. It’s based on the XML format and can be opened with PowerPoint 2007 and newer versions. The file may be viewed by the users who do not own a commercial PC version of MS PowerPoint but who could still view the presentation using PowerPoint Viewer.
