PowerPoint totally disappeared

Recommended Posts

Last night I was working on a PowerPoint file, saved it, and closed the file.

 

This morning I can't find the file and the PowerPoint icon in the bottom tray has disappeared.

 

I open the list of all apps, clicked on PowerPoint, several times, but nothing happens.

 

I found a recent sent e.mail which has a PowerPoint file attached.  When I click on the attachment to the sent file nothing happens.

 

What have I done??

 

(Word and Excel are working fine.)

 

Any advice much appreciated, thanks.

Not sure what you did (if anything).

 

Assuming you have a legit copy of Office you should be able to go the the add/remove programs screen and choose "modify" or "repair" (depends on the versions you have).

Start using Libre Office....FREE and in my opinion, nicer than Office.

Well by phone a buddy suggested multiple shut downs and start.

 

So I did a shut down and tried again, still no PP.

 

I did a shut down again and when I tried to open a PP file I got a message 'PP didn't open correctly last time, do you want to open in safe mode?' I did that and the file opened but need to click on the box at the top of the page 'enable corrections' or similar.

 

Did that, file opened and accepted further entries. Now PP seems to working OK.

 

Never a dull moment.

 

Thanks to all for the comments and suggestions.
