Creating a PowerPoint Package

It is a common practice to save a PowerPoint presentation in a package in order to open it on another computer and have it contain all files linked to the presentation. PowerPoint's package feature automatically includes your linked files and the PowerPoint Viewer to ensure your presentation will operate on virtually any computer.
