I cannot see parts of a PowerPoint presentation
Your professor(s) might share PowerPoint files that include embedded media, like videos or gifs. If you cannot see these media elements - for example, you might notice a reference or placeholder to content that appears to be missing, or you might see a thumbnail of a video, but not be able to play it - follow the steps below.
- Close the PowerPoint file.
- Open it again. This time, when it first opens, watch for a Security Alert window. On this window, choose to Enable external content for this session.
- Click OK.
- With "external content" enabled, you should now be able to see videos, gifs, or other media embedded in the PowerPoint.
