Hello friend,

1. First, you should download WinRar, and then after downloading, install it on your Windows 7 OS.

2. Then you will have to open the PowerPoint file with WinRar and then it will ask you to unzip the file.

3. Unzip the PowerPoint file with WinRar and then check whether the file is viewable or not.

4. If the file is viewable then it's all OK, otherwise follow the instructions below.

5. Unlock the file with unlocking software. You can get free unlocking software at the link shown below.

Unlocking Software

6. After downloading and installing the software, kindly open the PowerPoint file with the software and then unlock the file with the software.

7. You can view the slides of the PowerPoint file directly through the software.

8. Copy slides to another empty PowerPoint file and then edit the slides as you wish.

That's all you need.

Every time when we received any zip folder containing different files we cannot edit these files until these files are placed in zip folder.

First of all please copy your Power Point files from zip folder to any other location at your hard disk like in D:/ drive or any other drive.  Now open your Power Point and now you can edit it very easily without any problem.

Hi Amanda,

1. On your first question (unlocking a PowerPoint file in order to edit it), you would need to get back to the friend who sent it and ask them for the "password to open" (and "password to modify" if applicable) they set for that particular file. When you next attempt to open the locked PowerPoint file, simply input the password when requested and you should now be able to open/edit it. If you need to keep your own copy you may want to consider deleting the passwords (found in Tools>Options>Security) when you save the file for your own use.

2. For zipped files that are also locked, double click the zipped file in Windows Explorer and Microsoft will extract the compressed file for you. You may need to input the password(s) as described above when prompted.

Hope this helps.
