    Is there a powerpoint viewer for Mac? I'm trying to open the 2010 Powerpoint, but keynote only does the older versions.

    2010 only way I know of other than Office 2011 is to put them into Google docs, but it's a kludge.

    hmm okay thanks. so i'll probably be using another computer or using the preview. i click "get info" on the file and use the little preview screen to see the slides. now they're just really small and i can't edit anything. :p

    Did you try Quick Look? Click once on the file and then tap the space bar. If your stars align it will open up in a viewer window.

    That might not work on 2010 Powerpoint files though.

    If it doesn't work, try Open Office. (OpenOffice.org)

    Oh that's cool! Clicking the spacebar worked! Thank you :D
    And about OpenOffice, I had downloaded it once, but when I did, it was set as my default for opening documents, so I removed it. Do you have the program? Could you "unset" it as the default? Thanks.
