Files ending in PPTHTML are HTML files created by earlier versions of Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint, the standard presentation software from Microsoft Corporation, usually stores presentations (slideshow) as a ppt file. To view his documents in a browser, the user can save his document as a PPTHTML file.
This file then contains normal HTML source code similar to an html file. The source code is created in such a way that the browser displays the document as much as PowerPoint does.
The PPTHTML format is no longer supported by Microsoft. Documents that should be published on the Web should therefore be saved as an mhtml or mht file.
Newer versions of Microsoft Word save HTML code as an html file.

Some programs may be capable only of viewing contents of PPTHTML files or offer file conversion options, but may not be capable of editing such files.
It is possible that although a compatible program has been installed on user’s system, it is not used by the system to open it. This may happen because no default application was associated with this type of files. To associate PPTHTML files with given application, select "Open with" from drop-down menu (accessed by right-clicking on the file). Then select from the list the program or application you want to be used to open this type of file. If the PowerPoint applications is not on the list, select "Browse" option in order to manually locate the directory where PowerPoint has been installed.
Sometimes problems with opening PPTHTML files may not lie with the application itself, but can arise due to other causes, such as:
