When trying to share a PowerPoint file, clicking on Share Now results in an error.
This occurs when the user does not have PowerPoint installed on the computer they are using.
There are three workarounds for this:
1) Use Mozilla Firefox
This affects Chromium browsers, including Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Mozilla Firefox is not affected.
2) Export the PowerPoint file to a PDF
If your file is stored on OneDrive:
- Open the file
- Click the File Menu
- Click Save As
- Click Download as PDF
3) Get someone else to upload the file for you
As long as they have PowerPoint installed.
