Opening PowerPoint Files in Presentation Mode in SharePoint 2007

There is no out of box way of getting slidedecks to open in presentation mode in SharePoint 2007 (or 2003), even if they are saved as pps/x files.  This is related to browser and file association issues that are far too time consuming for most end users to sort out.

A much simpler solution :  Save the slideshow as a PDF and upload it.

Thanks to Neels du Toit from Absa Capital for bringing this to our attention. 🙂

It works fine in SharePoint 2010.
