Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is a slide show presentation program currently developed by Microsoft. PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides" that may contain text, graphics, sound, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely. The presentation can be printed, displayed live on a computer, or navigated through at the command of the presenter. Slides can also form the basis of webcasts.

I'm trying to setup a slide show using many slides. I have them imported into a PowerPoint presentation and have the transitions setup.  But I can't figure out how to apply the same timing to move from one slide to another for the entire slideshow.  Can someone help?

Is it possible to copy multiple slides from Powerpoint to Excel?

I want the slides as thumbnails for a project in excel and I can easily copy one slide at a time. However, when I select multiple slides in Powerpoint and try to paste them into Excel, only the first slide in the selection is pasted. If this can't be done manually, is there a VBA solution to the problem?

If I changed a PowerPoint extension to ".zip," then open the zip file, and make one the files inside of it ready only, next I rename the zip file back to a .PPTX, would that prevent me from saving changes to the PowerPoint file afterwards?
Lets  us say a zip file contains PowerPoint data, or the file's extension was changed from ".pptx" to "zip," then I modify one of the files inside the zipped file, using Windows Zip, what impact would that be, if I changed the zip file back to the PowerPoint file? Would the PowerPoint file be corrupted?
Can you change the a zipped file properties such a read only, if the zipped file was once a PowerPoint file?

OneDrive for Business has a restrictions on certain file types and if the file is zero kb in size, then it would not upload, so if I rename a PowerPoint file to have a .zip extension and find a file on the list that is zero kb in size or is one of the file types restricted by OneDrive for Business, would this prevent the PowerPoint file from being saved?

If a PowerPoint file created with PowerPoint 365 has its extension changed to .zip, then I open the application with WinZip and find a file size with zero kb, maybe with a blank slide, would that prevent the file from saving (accepting) new changes, if it has the PowerPoint extension?
