How to add, Remove or Change Password From PowerPoint File

Over its long history, MS PowerPoint has more than proven itself as an excellent tool for both businesses and private individuals who wish to make a clean, well-ordered, and professional-looking presentation. Using MS PowerPoint is easy, and it gives the user access to some superb visual effects, that the user can incorporate into their presentation with little to no effort, making the said presentation as impressive as possible. However, as with other types of files that contain information, sometimes you may want to make absolutely sure that the content of an MS PowerPoint presentation won't be getting into the wrong hands.
