How to make IE11 to show PPT files in browser? I've configured IE to run ActiveX, and installed ActiveX component as suggested here (, however still no luck.

The ability to save a PowerPoint presentation as a web page was deprecated in Office 2010, so it's no longer possible to do this. And the link you provided is for LibreOffice files, when you asked about PPT (Microsoft PowerPoint). Can you provide some context around the reason you want to do this? We may be able to help you come up with an alternate solution.

LibreOffice did allow display (feature has been deprecated) of their presentations in IE using the ActiveX control, but you would need to convert the presentation to LibreOffice format.
