Hello to all my favorite computer gurus! I don't stop here often but when I encounter a problem this is where I find shelter. My question pertains to opening attachments in Outlook Express that contain .pps as part as the file name. I get the ol' message "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action". Please point me in the direction of fixing this so I can open these email attachments. Thank you for any help I know you will give me.... You always save the day!

.pps, are Powerpoint Slideshow files.
If you have PowerPoint, you can open them with that.
If not, there's a free program that you can use to view the images:
XnView

You're quite welcome, daisy123.
I received those types of files before, and had no way to open then, so I had to go hunting for a program that would. :thumbsup:
There's not many image file types, that XnView won't open.
I believe it's close to 400 different types it will open, and almost 50 that it'll write to.

Just as a footnote, Microsoft has a PowerPoint viewer:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

"PowerPoint Viewer 2003 lets you view full-featured presentations created in PowerPoint 97 and later versions. This viewer also supports opening password-protected Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. You can view and print presentations, but you cannot edit them in the PowerPoint Viewer 2003."

Regards,
John
