Edit a slide in a Slide Library

Important: The SharePoint Slide library is only available in SharePoint 2010. For more info, see Discontinued features and modified functionality in Microsoft SharePoint 2013.

Before editing a slide in a Slide Library, you must first create a Slide Library in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and then publish slides to the library. Find more information about creating and adding slides to a Slide Library in the See Also section.

Note: You must have Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007installed on your computer before you can edit slides in an Office SharePoint Server 2007 Slide Library. Slide Libraries support only PowerPoint 2007 .pptx files that contain multiple slides or .ppt files that contain just one slide.

Edit a slide in a Slide Library

Tip: You can use Versioning to track changes to your slides or to restore a previous version of a slide directly from your Slide Library. To learn more about versioning settings in Office SharePoint Server 2007, see How does versioning work in a list or library.
