Once you've uploaded your PowerPoint file, you can access it by going into YouTube and clicking on Video Manager > Uploaded. You'll see the PowerPoint video is automatically in this folder.

- If you want to edit a PowerPoint Presentation before uploading it:

* Open PowerPoint presentation with your desired content. * Select all contents of PowerPoint presentation (Ctrl + A) * Copy (Ctrl+C). Close PowerPoint document so that changes are saved. * Create new blank PowerPoint document - called "PowerPoint Blank" for example name; create content as needed from scratch or start over again using past version up until present date if preferred. Paste contents copied earlier inside of newly created blank presentation.(ctrl-V) From there, you can save these changes and upload PowerPoint as usual.

* Go to YouTube and Upload, PowerPoint Presentation option is available if PowerPoint has been copied into a blank presentation with the original content inside of it.

- When uploading PowerPoint presentations on YouTube, make sure you have not inserted any additional videos or audio in your PowerPoint slide show because these will be included automatically when uploaded onto YouTube Video Manager > Uploaded folder for video uploads. You can view them by going to Videos section under My Channel. If there are two different versions of the same "PowerPoint Blank" file, then only one version will be used and whichever was last updated will be selected - so keep this in mind before saving important changes!
