Repair Office and PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

Learn how to repair Office and PowerPoint 2010 for Windows.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher

Microsoft Office 2010 was released on June 15, 2010. It is the successor of the previous version, Office 2007 and among the most used programs across the globe. However, after using the Office 2010 programs such as PowerPoint, Word, and Excel repeatedly, there may be times when these Office 2010 applications face some serious issues such as crashes, corrupted files, etc. And in some scenarios you may not be able to run any Office 2010 application. At this state of time you may wish to perform some magical process that will resolve the issue.

Fortunately there is an easy way to resolve these issues and it's called a Repair installation. In this tutorial we explain how this task can be performed.

Tip: Additionally you can also rename or delete your PCB file in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows to counter problems with error messages related to add-ins or customizations when PowerPoint is loading.

  1. Launch the Run dialog box in Windows, and type in "control appwiz.cpl" without the quotes, as shown in Figure 1, below. Then click the OK button.
