How to Work Together in Microsoft PowerPoint on Windows Computers

Collaborate on PowerPoint

Making presentations, documents, spreadsheets, etc., isn't always easy, but a few pairs of hands on the job can make it quicker and more efficient. Google docs, sheets, and slides allow you to work with colleagues. However, these applications aren't as user-friendly as the ones by Microsoft. Handling the Google counterpart can be slightly more difficult for someone who is used to using shortcuts to do many of the tasks. Luckily, Microsoft now allows you to work with people. I will show you how to work together in Microsoft PowerPoint on Windows computers in this tutorial.

Step-1: Open the PowerPoint app or the presentation you wish to collaborate with other people on Windows.

Step-2: Click on the Share button on the left corner of the PowerPoint window.

Step-8: You will see options like the Set expiration date and Set password. These security measures will ensure that people won't have access to the link indefinitely and set a password so that only those with a password chosen by you will be able to access the file.
