If you have selected the file from a list or an attachment,  opening the
file will start PowerPoint.  If you first open PowerPoint you have to open
the file.  Either works fine.
When a presentation is first opened it usually is in slide pane,  a mode in
which you can make changes.  If you hit f5 you will starte the presentation
mode and will not be able to make changes.
F6 switches powerPoint from slide pane mode to notes pane, and outline pane,
and back to slide pane.  Although I sometimes use outline pane, I have found
slide pane as the best mode to work in.

Dear Robert:

Thank you. So I have to open the programme before the presentation and
access the presentation throught the programme no?

I cannot just go to the presentation and do it that way? If I muust not hit
F5, what keystroke is there for the slide mode?

Cheers, Andrew.
