Microsoft Power point error accessing

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everyone,

For some project that I am working on for easy access we use Share point.

From the work I have put new version of PPTX presentation. From my laptop I can access and edit it.

This time I got an error message. Did anyone had this or similar problem?

How can I fix it?

Thank you

Microsoft Power point error accessing


Try the following as the workaround to that issue:

You will need to fix the file using the following steps:

  • You will locate the file that is causing the problem in windows explorer and then right-click on it.
  • And then click on  Properties on the pop-up menu that will show up.
  • Then locate the  General tab of the Properties dialog box and click on it, and there click on "Unblock"
  • And finally click OK.

You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the Properties dialog box to find "Unblock". In case the file is not blocked, then you will not see the unblock button, and therefore you will need to look for another fix.

The alternative workaround will be to fix the problem PowerPoint may be having as follows:

  • Open the PowerPoint presentation.
  • And then choose File followed by Options
  • You will then need to click "Trust Center",  and then click "Trust Center Settings".
  • You will then click "Protected View" in the window that will open and then REMOVE the checkmark that is next to "Enable protected view for files originating from the internet"
  • And then click OK.
