How to Get Your PowerPoint to Load on Another Computer: Fonts, Picture Modifications and All!

This week's tutorial is one that a lot of people ask me about!  It can be so frustrating to make a PowerPoint on your computer at home, then head to your work computer and have all of your hard work with fancy fonts and giving pictures transparent backgrounds go to waste! 

I do want to forewarn you that this tutorial does NOT copy over videos or sound effects, so those will need to be reinserted.  It also does not copy over transitions, as it flattens all of the images.  Outside of those items though, the PowerPoint will look just as it does on the computer you created it on.

Now... onto the tutorial!

You can download this tutorial as a PDF by clicking this picture!
Note: This tutorial is hosted on Google Docs.  To save it from there, just open the file and click File > Download to save onto your computer!

As for next week's poll, I'll add something that is super helpful - how to figure out which fonts are missing from an editable file that you downloaded!


  1. Interesting! I often wondered about how to do that! Every time I send a colleague my creations, they don't get the same version because they don't have the cute fonts, etc that I have on my computer!
