Automatically show your presentation

PowerPoint 365
Instead of opening your PowerPoint presentation file and then clicking F5 or using other ways to start the presentation, you can save your PowerPoint file in the PowerPoint Show format. Also, this format prevents changes in the presentation.

To save the presentation in the PowerPoint Show format, on the File tab, click the Save As... and then choose PowerPoint Show (*.ppsx):

Save As PowerPoint 2016

This allows you to save the file on your PC, and when you click on it, the presentation starts automatically. No opening up PowerPoint program first!
