If you want to transfer your Word document to PowerPoint 2016, you should obviously have Office 2016 installed on your computer. Changing one document type to another is pretty easy.
First of all, you need to save that Word document as a PDF and then convert PDF to PPT.
Saving Word as PDF
To convert your Word document to PDF directly from MS Word, go to File menu and click on the Save as. The next step is to choose the location where you want to save the file, to check the file name and click on Word document or the arrow to open dropdown menu.
From the list of document types choose PDF and click on the Save button.
Now that your Word file is available in PDF format you can easily convert it to PowerPoint. If you have installed PowerPoint 2016, the converted file will be in that format.
Convert PDF to PPT online without email
Go to our PDF to PPT converter and drop the PDF file in the designated area. The conversion starts automatically and when the file is converted to PPT, click to download it.
That’s it, in just a few simple steps you can transfer your Word document to PowerPoint 2016.
Additional tips for transferring only a part of a Word document
If you don’t want to transfer the whole Word document to PowerPoint 2016, you can create two same versions of Word document, one original with all the pages and the other that you will use to remove the pages you don’t need to have in PowerPoint.
After you delete the pages in Word and leave only the ones you need, follow the instructions above to transfer a Word document to PowerPoint 2016.
These instructions would actually work on all versions of PowerPoint because when you convert PDF to PowerPoint, the converted file will open in every PowerPoint viewer you have.
