What is a .POT file?

pot file icon

POT files are created by Microsoft PowerPoint to store templates for various types of presentations, such as photo slideshows or business seminars. The file format was introduced in the 1990s and was the primary file format for saving templates in PowerPoint until version 2007, when it was replaced by the POTX format. Although, POT files are not as common as they once were, they are still used today to save PowerPoint templates.

Microsoft PowerPoint comes with pre-designed POT templates, but PowerPoint users can create their own POT files too. Even though they were replaced by POTX files, you may still receive POT files attached to emails from co-workers, family members, or friends looking to share a presentation design with you. Or you may find old POT files saved on your computer from previous years. File Viewer Plus allows you to view your POT templates and convert them to PDF, JPEG, and PNG formats.
