File too big to preview

New member | Level 2

I'm trying to send a pptx file that is 555.95 MB. The link says the file is too big to preview. The solution was to download it to view the file. How is that done?

Your recipient won't see a preview of the file. Instead, they'll be able to click the Download button in the upper-right corner of the page. Once they download the file to their comptuer, they'll be able to open it in PowerPoint or whatever application they're using to view the file.
