When you've wrapped up your presentation and want to share it with your colleagues, you're likely to share it with email. It's a simple tip, but using PowerPoint's built-in email feature can save you time whenever you need to share your presentation file.

How to Quickly Email a PowerPoint Presentation
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that compliment this video.
1. Click Email in Your PowerPoint Share Menu
While you're working in a PowerPoint presentation, go to the File menu and click on Share. Now, click on Email on the left side. Let's click on Send As Attachment.
2. PowerPoint Will Open Your Email Client Automatically
PowerPoint will actually open up your default email client and attach the presentation to that email. You can add a recipient and your message to quickly send this as an email attachment. This saves you the clicks of saving it separately and then attaching it by browsing through your folders.
3. Or, Email Your PowerPoint Presentation as a PDF
Another great way to do this is to send a PDF file instead. If your view doesn't have PowerPoint on their computer this ensures that they can view the file. You can do this by going to the same menu but this time choose Send As PDF.
You'll see that the same dialog launches, but this time with a PDF attached to the email ready to send.
These two tips are both time savers when it comes to sharing your PowerPoint presentations and hard work through email.
