Use PowerPoint Mobile for Windows Phone

Want to review your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation before a big meeting? Or maybe fix a small typo you see? You can do it right on your phone using Microsoft PowerPoint Mobile. Just go to the Office Hub to get started.

Opened PowerPoint presentation

To open a PowerPoint presentation

  1. In the App list, tap Office Office icon.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • In Places, tap the place that the presentation is in, and then tap the presentation. It can be in any of these places—on your phone, in email, on OneDrive, on a Microsoft SharePoint 2010 or later site, or on a SharePoint Online site, which is available with Microsoft Office 365.
    • Flick to Recent, and then tap a presentation you recently opened.
    • Tap Search Search icon. In the Search box, start typing the presentation name, and then tap the presentation when you see it.


 Notes 

  • To open a presentation stored on OneDrive, a Microsoft account must be set up on your phone. For more info about saving and syncing documents on OneDrive, see Sync documents with OneDrive.
  • Looking for a presentation you already opened from email? Just flick to Places, tap Email, and then tap the presentation.
  • To learn about working with presentations that are on a SharePoint or SharePoint Online site, see Work with documents on SharePoint.
  • PowerPoint Mobile doesn't support all the features in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 or later. If a presentation has content that's not supported, you can still open the presentation on your phone. The unsupported content won't be displayed or will be displayed differently, and you might not be able to edit the presentation.

 Tip   Have a presentation you use a lot lately? Pin it to Start so you can get to it quickly. In the Office Hub, flick to Recent, tap and hold the presentation, and then tap Pin to start.
