The Microsoft PowerPoint viewer gives users the ability to view PowerPoint presentations without the need to have a working version of Microsoft Office installed on their system. This is a free and basic utility that only allows presentations to be viewed; it doesn't support editing or modifications. It does allow users to open locked or encrypted files if they have the appropriate access key. Installing the program only takes a few seconds.

PowerPoint is the most widely used presentation software on the planet, and this utility gives everyone the ability to access and view presentations in this particular format. It is very lightweight and requires no configuration during or after installation. This software is convenient, incredibly easy to use, and does not take up a lot of system resources.

It would be nice if Microsoft offered a full-blown PowerPoint software program without the need to purchase Office. This would eliminate the need to find utilities like this one simply to view a presentation. I would be inclined to upgrade and purchase PowerPoint if the viewer gave me the option, but I guess Microsoft has other ideas in mind.

There is nothing wrong with the program from a user standpoint. It is not full of glitches or bugs, you don't have to worry about any kind of advertising or spyware, and there are no strings attached with respect to downloading or installing the software. It runs on most versions of Windows, and it works just like the full version in terms of display quality.

It can be used on a desktop, laptop, or through a projector. However, this particular edition does not work on mobile devices. I prefer to use OpenOffice when creating presentations and I do not have Microsoft Office installed on my computer. This utility works just fine for me, and I've never had any problems opening or viewing files.

Simple to use.

Enables viewing of all PowerPoint Presentations.

Easy on the system.

Small download.

Cons

No option to upgrade to the stand-alone PowerPoint program.

Doesn't work on mobile devices.
