PowerPoint high cpu usage

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/07/15

Every once in a while, a hidden POWERPNT.EXE consumes 100% of one CPU core (on a single core, that is deadly, on a multi-core system it drains your battery pretty fast).

This was the cause:

One reason is you have preview pane enabled and have selected a PowerPoint File. To preview it an invisible copy of PowerPoint is opened and may not close when you deselect. This doesn’t normally use much cpu though.

Still struggling with some PowerPoint 2007+ features (:

After having used the “classic” office since Office 95, there are still a few features that I can access blindly in Office 2003 and before, but have a hard time remembering in Office 2007 and beyond.

Most of those are the ones you rarely use, but the “classic office way” somehow made it in the autonomous nervous system.

It doesn’t help that the corresponding keyboard shortcuts fail to work in the “modern” Office versions any more either.

A few links on some PowerPoint features:
