Display a Powerpoint file on SP 2010 home Page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I want to display a  PowerPoint 2013 file in SharePoint 2010 Home Page of a Team Site. I am trying to use Page Viewer web part to show up the file, But the browser downloads it to the machine instead of showing up. Is there a way to display the PowerPoint file using a web part in SharePoint 2010 Page?

  • Do you mean, Office Web Access? I think I did, because I am able to open the file in Browser.

  • Not sure about the 2013 file in sp2010, but perhaps one of these will help your issue:

    1. Default setting for files in Collection or Site may be set to "open in client" and this might be stopping your feature from working.
    2. You might need to use a WebPart of some kind to get it to actually DISPLAY on the homepage form... eg "Power Point Web Access" part?
    3. You may have features in your PP file that it doesn't like (although since you say you can open in browser, I'd say this is not the case)

  • Hi,

    According to your post, my understanding is that you wanted to display a PowerPoint file on SharePoint 2010 home page.

    You can do some steps as the following.

    Step 1: Ensure that Office Web Apps have been installed and configured on SharePoint 2010.  

    Step 2: Upload the PowerPoint to a document library.

    Step 3: Click on the PowerPoint Deck to open it in PowerPoint Web App.  It will have a URL that looks like:


    Step 4: Open the Developer Tools in Internet Explorer (F12), and search for iframe.

    Step 5: Copy the first result into your text editor of choice.  The magic URL you need is the one within the src attribute.

    Step 6: Go to the SharePoint Page you want to embed the PowerPoint into.  Add a Page Viewer Web Part to the page.  Open the tool pane for the web part.

    Step 7: In the Page Viewer tool pane, paste in the URL, and optionally enter a height/width and chrome state for the PowerPoint Deck.

    Step 8: Hit “OK” and be awed at how awesome it looks to have a fully functional PowerPoint deck embedded on your page.  You can view the deck full screen by clicking “Start Slide Show”, you can change slides, view notes, click links, or click the “popout” button to have the deck open up in a popout window.

  • Hi Jason,

    What happens if I have ERM on the PowerPoint file? I have restricted the permissions on the powerpoint file while authoring it and uploaded to Doc library. Now what will happen to the file? and who can view it? I am confused about this.

  • Hi,

    If the user has no permission for the PowerPoint file, he could not see the PowerPoint file in the page view, and he will get the error “Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you”.

    Thanks & Regards,
