PowerPoint - Pack and Go

If you need to run a MicroSoft PowerPoint presentation on another computer that does not have PowerPoint loaded, you can run Pack and Go from the File Menu.  Pack and Go compresses all of the slides, graphics, fonts, and linked files onto floppy disks.  When you get to your destination, run the pngsetup.exe file that is one the (first)
floppy disk.  You are ready for your presentation.

Pack and Go is also useful is you want to email a presentation to someone because:

  1. You can send the presentation as a compressed/zipped file
  2. It allows for anyone with or without PowerPoint to see your presentation.
