Playing a Power Point presentation

Playing a Power Point presentation

I have uploaded a 14 minute Power Point presentation but when I open it I don't know how to make it begin the presentation. I see all 55 slides but it never "starts". Thanks in advance!

Hi @wendy and jim patterson, thanks for messaging the Community!

Are you trying to open the file as a preview in Dropbox, or are you opening it on Office online via the Dropbox site?

This will help me to assist further!

I thought I uploaded it.  This is what my screen looks like.  When I click the EPK it opens...but I need it to "play".  Thanks so much!Screenshot (1).png

If you click the PPTX file so it preview, click the 'Open' button on the top right and choose 'Office for the web'. 

From there, you'll get the option to play the presentation in the browser.
