Power point not saving in windows 8


  • Power point in windows 8 not saving. Any time I try to save the file, I got "Press ESC to cancel saving". I change the name, the type of file I want to, close the program, always the same note. Also opens "Press Esc to cancel opening".

  • Hi

    The message appears when saving is taking a long time for reasons below:

    1.You either had started with a .ppt file and it is in compatibility mode.

    2.You have a huge file.

    3.You have lots of pictures and PowerPoint is compressing them (you may consider changing that setting).

    4.You have embedded sounds and fonts.

    5.Or a combination of the previous.

    That message is normal. Just give it a couple minutes and you should be good to go.
