    • Click Send as PDF to save your presentation as a Portable Document Format (.pdf) file, and then attach the PDF file to an e-mail message. For more information about PDF files, see File formats that are supported in PowerPoint 2010.

    • Click Send as XPS to save your presentation as a .xps file, and then attach the file to a e-mail message. For more information about XPS files, see File formats that are supported in PowerPoint 2010.
