If you right-click a PowerPoint presentation in Windows Explorer, and click Show on the menu that appears, PowerPoint starts and runs the presentation as a slide show. While you are running the slide show, you can add an Action Items slide and Speaker Notes. When the slide show finishes, however, the presentation closes and you are not asked to save any changes. When you reopen the presentation, the Action Items slide and/or Speaker Notes you just added are missing.


The presentation file has a read-only attribute. When you use the Show command on the shortcut menu in Windows Explorer, PowerPoint does not display a read-only warning.


To resolve this problem and modify a presentation during a slide show, open the presentation in PowerPoint, and then run the slide show.
