    Do you want to open a Powerpoint file that's been emailed to you as an attachment?

    Do you have power point on your computer? If not you will need to get some Office Suite that will open the power point file.

    If I am not mistaken when I got a pps file and clicked or double clicked on it that it opened in "keynote". Does that sound plausible? I don't get them type files too often but I am pretty sure that they opened in keynote. Is that possible?

    Keynote is a type of presentation software. It should be able to open power point presentations. Also to open the video file, download it to your computer and then double-click on it. It should open up quicktime and play the file.
