Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 is the current version of Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows. It is the standard version of PowerPoint to be found on lab PCs, faculty PCs, and multimedia classroom PCs beginning Fall 2010. Likewise, Microsoft PowerPoint 2008 is the current version of PowerPoint for Apple and is the standard version for lab, faculty, and multimedia Macs beginning in Fall 2008. PowerPoint 2007 and 2008 brings the integration of the ribbon to the user interface, which is a new graphical layout replacing many of the formatting tool bars found in previous versions.

Note: For Office 2007 or later, the default file format is .pptx. This means that any computers running Office 2007 or 2008 will be able to access such files, but if someone tries to access such a file from Office 2003 or 2004, it will not work. To ensure backwards compatibility, simply select the .ppt format when saving the document to ensure that Office 2003 or 2004 users can open the document.
