Hi, I have a slideshow (saved as pps) and need to save it as a ppt so I can make edits to the slides.  I dont believe I can edit in a pps.  I am not sure how this can be done or if it is even possible.  

Let me know, thank you

start powerpoint, click Open
choose your pps file and click ok
it must be opened in the editable format now just like ppt files
goto File>Save As and save it as a .ppt file.

You can edit a pps - AFAIK the only difference between a pps and a ppt is that a pps will play automatically when opened, while a ppt will open in design mode

thank you.  I open the pps file and I can not get to the menu bar for some reason.  How can I do this?   It seems to be disabled.  I can not get it to open in design mode (tried shift, enter)

thank you

are you able to run this .pps file itself?

opening it in powerpoint should not create any problem.....

yes I can run the pps file.  I can not get to the design area though.  I try to hit escape and it just takes me out of the file.  ??

Shehar, I knew that I was in show view the question was how do I get out of it.  Anyways, I went to ppt and did File Open and the pps file opened in design.  How picky ppt is.  

thank you for the help...much appreciated.
