Every once in awhile I find a great looking Keynote slide deck, like these over at Site2Max, and I think how great it would be to bring it over into PowerPoint to customize it. Fortunately, there is a super simple and free way to do just that – even if you don’t have access to the Keynote software. Here is how it works.

Converting a Keynote file to PowerPoint

The first step is uploading the Keynote file to the free, online version of Keynote via iCloud.com. Create a free account if you don’t already have one.

Next, open the Keynote app and upload the .key file by dragging it into your browser tab displaying the Keynote online app.

After uploading, open the slide deck and look for the “Download a Copy…” option under the Keynote tools button at the top right. (wrench icon)

Choose PowerPoint as the download format and off you go!!
