How to convert Google Slides to PPT files.

Learn how to convert Google Slides presentations and PDF documents into PowerPoint PPT files.

Google Slides and Microsoft PowerPoint are both popular tools for presentations and slideshows. The great thing about them is that they can work together. You can simply upload a PowerPoint PPT file into Google Slides, and it’ll work.

But what if you need to do the opposite and get a PPT file out of Google Slides? You’ll have to click on a few more buttons, but the process is still easy. Read on to learn how to convert a Google Slides slideshow into a PPT file.

Download a PPT from Google Slides.

If you have access to a Google Slides presentation, converting it to a PPT is fast and easy. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Google Slides presentation in a web browser.
  2. From the top menu, select File > Download.
  3. Select the Microsoft PowerPoint option from the list of file types.

Google Slides will automatically convert the slideshow into a PPT file and let you download it with your browser. The PPT file should retain all original formatting from the Google Slides file. If you notice some small errors, you can fix them quickly in PowerPoint.

Convert a presentation PDF to a PPT file.

Google Slides lets you download presentations in many formats, including PDF. Since PDF files are simple and fast to share, someone might send a presentation to you as a PDF instead of PPT. PDFs aren’t ideal for presentations but fortunately, you can easily convert the PDF into a PowerPoint slideshow in three steps:

  1. Navigate to Adobe Acrobat online services and launch the PDF to PowerPoint tool.
  2. Drag and drop a PDF to the converter or click Select A File to locate the document.
  3. Download the converted PPT file.

You can now edit and present the slideshow using PowerPoint. Acrobat online services can also convert PowerPoint presentations — and many other files — to PDF documents and much more.
