Tip Tuesday: Export to PowerPoint from Keynote on Mac

Many Mac users create presentations in the Keynote app, but may need to share what they’ve created in a PowerPoint or Google Slides file format.

To save a copy of a Keynote presentation in another format, you export it in the new format. Any changes made to the exported presentation don’t affect the original.

Save a copy of a Keynote presentation in another format

  1. Open the presentation, then choose File > Export To > PowerPoint.
    The File menu open in Keynote with "Export To" selected and its submenu showing export options for PDF, PowerPoint, Movie, HTML, Images, and Keynote ’09.
  2. You may be offered the option to set a password for the exported file, keep or change an existing password, or export without a password.
  3. Click Next, then type a name for the presentation.
  4. To choose where to save the presentation, click the Where pop-up menu, choose a location, then click Export.
  5. Your exported file can now be opened in MS PowerPoint, or uploaded to your Google Slides.
