PowerPoint Tips: Compress Media Files

Lesson 8: Compress Media Files


Compress media files

When using audio or video in PowerPoint, the file size of your presentation can get pretty big. To get the size under control, you can compress the media in your presentation. Just click the File tab, then select Compress Media to access compression options.

We recommend making a backup copy of your presentation before doing any compression because once you save and close the file, the change will be permanent.
