.PPS opens as .PPT in Browser

Posted: August 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

Issue

Whenever you try to open the Powerpoint slide file .PPS from a web browser it opens it in Edit mode in .PPT format

 

Resolution

  • Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
  • Locate and click the following key in the registry:
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PowerPoint.Show.8
  • On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
  • Value name: BrowserFlags
    Data type: REG_DWORD
    Radix: click Hexadecimal
    Value data: 0
  • Quit Registry Editor.

The value of a causes the presentation to be opened in edit mode. The value of 8 causes the presentation to be opened in a new window in show mode. The value of 0 or the absence of this registry key causes the presentation to be opened in the browser window in show mode.
