Extract Files From MS Office Docs

less than 1 minute read


I have only tested this on Powerpoint, but I read that it works on other files as well. Essentially, if you get a file with a lot of pictures and you want to extract them easily, follow this method to either delete the files to shrink the file size, or extract them separately:

To Resolve:

  1. Run => control folders => Show file extensions

  2. Make a copy of the file in case you mess it up beyond repair.

  3. Rename the file extension to .zip

  4. Delete the files in the “embedded” folder.

  5. Rename extension back to .pptx

  6. Open the file.
