Saving and converting a presentation from prior versions
Saving a i le right after you create it is good practice. It makes it easy to save modii cations as
you build the document and helps PowerPoint recover your i le if your computer or software
stops working correctly.
The template you are using for this presentation was saved in a version of PowerPoint prior
to 2007. You can quickly and easily convert a PowerPoint presentation saved in a previous
version of PowerPoint to the newer .pptx i le format.
Notice that in the title bar, after the title of the open presentation, PowerPoint displays the
words Compatibility Mode . In Compatibility Mode, not all features of PowerPoint 2010 are
available to you.
Compatibility Mode appears after the title of the presentation.
Click File > Info > Convert. PowerPoint displays the Save As dialog box.
In the File name box, type pp0101_working and click Save. Compatibility Mode
no longer appears on the title bar. PowerPoint saves the i le as a .pptx i le, which is
compatible with PowerPoint version 2007 and greater.
