The pot file extension is created by Microsoft PowerPoint. This file extension is created for templates associated with the PowerPoint application. If you have downloaded or created a pot file and would like to open pot files you will either need a registered copy of Microsoft PowerPoint or a compatible program.
Open Office Impress is a free software program that will open pot files. The Open Office line of programs is much like Microsoft Office. It contains all the programs you will need in an office setting. The three most used components of Open Officer are word processioning, spreadsheets, and presentation. These three programs are fully compatible with Microsoft Office files and a large list of other office type programs.
If you have downloaded the pot file as a template for a PowerPoint presentation you should try downloading Open Office. Because Open Office is an open source program there are many templates available for download to use with Open Office Impress. If you find a template that you would like to use for Microsoft PowerPoint but it happens to be an Open Office Impress file, simply open it with Open Office and save it as a pot file. You can then open the template in Microsoft PowerPoint.
