The file format is the trend of these days; this is because presentations are used for several professional and even non-professional purposes. Here is a simple batch conversion tool that lets you convert as many as your PPT files to PPTX or and vice versa, immediately. Well, PPT and PPTX are the same file formats; the former is the older version, and the later is the newer version; they are the file extension of the infamous Microsoft PowerPoint program which is merely an app for creating stunning/fascinating presentations for diverse purposes.
Unfortunately, you cannot play PPT presentation files on PCs using PowerPoint ’07 or later versions it is an old format and equally not compatible with the Open XML format introduced by Microsoft in 2007. On the other hand, the later version, PPTX is an Open XML format file, and as such, presentations with this extension can be read by other programs in support of Open XML format files such as OpenOffice.
Alternatively, because this tool integrates with the context menu of the default windows explorer/folders, it is much easier to batch convert PPT to PPTX right from a folder without launching the app; just right-click and convert any PPT file to PPTX or PPTX to PPT immediately.
It is part from other tools category and is licensed as shareware for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platform and can be used as a free trial until the trial period will end. The Batch PPT and PPTX Converter demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions compared with the full version.
