What is the .PPTX file type?

The .pptx filename extension relates to the newer Microsoft (MS) PowerPoint Presentation format, an extension of the larger Office Open XML (OOXML) file type format. OOXML is a cross-platform document format covered with an ISO standard. However, there are still licensing issues connected with OOXML.

The .pptx extension has been introduced with MS Office 2007 and represents a PowerPoint presentation stored in a zipped XML-based file. PPTX files are natively supported in MS Office 2007 and newer editions.
