A file that stores macro-enabled slide shows and presentations. It was introduced together with the development of PowerPoint 2007. PPTM stores audio, video, images and text with different formatting styles. The file contains an XML structure and can handle embedded macros. To use embedded macros in PPTX, you must first save the file as .PPTM.
This format is used to store small personal icons. It is used in website development to create favicons that are displayed in the address bar of the web browser as well as in satellite TV for identifying broadcast channels. It is very similar in structure to a GIF format image.
