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.
This format is used to store background images in uncompressed form in the X Windows System user interface for remote server maintenance. It stores a 'dump' or screenshot of the window or background of the client program. It may include different colors depending on the capabilities of the graphics card that is used to create the XWD file.
