Hi all. At the risk of exposing myself as semi computer illiterate, I need some advice. My Daughter did a report for school on Powerpoint (office for mac) and needs to present it for her class. My questions are, 1) Will the PP presentation play on the windows machines at her school? 2) How do we get the presentation to a usb drive? Thanks for the help!

If you used MS Mac Office to do the PP presentations, then they should play OK on the school's Windows computer assuming the school is using MS Office for Windows. Make sure you save them in "compatibility mode" rather than XML just to be sure.

As far as transferring them to the USB flash drive.... just plug the drive into your Mac. It should mount on the desktop. Then open Finder, Documents, and drag the PPT documents to the USB drive. That will copy them to the USB drive.

Regards.

In theory if the school has the same program you used & it's the same version...then you should have no problems.

But folks doing presentations...whether it be for school, personal, or business related...whenever you use someone else's computer for the presentation...there is always the chance that something won't work right or look right (formatting might not look right).

Good luck,
