What is a POT File Type?

You will probably only find a POT if you are using PowerPoint 97 until 2003 or if you are working with someone using these versions of the software. If you use PowerPoint 2007 or later and save your presentation as a template, it will be saved in OpenXML format with l' extension .POTX. Although the default POTX file is used by PowerPoint 2007 or later, you can still use it to open the POT file.

POT files are installed with PowerPoint allowing you to create presentations such as school reports, quarterly summaries, or slideshows of family photos from models with defined pre-formatting and styles. You can create your own custom templates to reproduce presentations specific to your needs.
