Fixing PowerPoint Annoyances: When I double-click a .pps/.ppx file, the PowerPoint icon appear on the taskbar…

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/05

From [WayBack1. Presenting Your Presentation – Fixing PowerPoint Annoyances [Book]:

PowerPoint Opens Minimized

THE ANNOYANCE: I can’t get my presentation to open properly when I double-click it. I can see the PowerPoint icon on the taskbar, but it won’t maximize or restore. How can I view the presentation?

THE FIX: Your slide show is set to display on the secondary monitor, which is no longer attached to your computer. Open PowerPoint from Start → Program Files and select File → Open to open your presentation. Then select Slide Show → Set up Show and choose “Display slide show on primary monitor.”
