I have a .KEY file on my Windows 10 computer.  I need to play it with MS Office PowerPoint.  Is there a way to convert (or play) the .KEY file to a .PPT file?  I don't have a computer with Apple software on it.  I can't open the file and save it as a .PPT file, I need to actually convert it.



I know the collective brain power of ARFcom will solve this dilemma.



Thanks

I've been through a lot of those.  The online conversion sites usually have a 50mb or 100mb limit.  The file I have is over 450mb.  Some of the other options that I tried and rejected included the icloud on the Windows 10 machine.  For some reason it stalled or would complete the install process.  



Most of the suggestions on the search engines required me to actually open the KEY file and save it as a PPT file, which I can't do.

Cant you just upload it to icloud, and export it that way?

Keynote app is only 9,99 probably your cheapest way.

I downloaded this and it won't open the files.  It can display them in Text or Hex format, but the native view is blank.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I am on a deadline so I might have to find someone that uses a Mac and convert it with their machine.

1. Put File on thumb drive
2. Drive to nearest Apple Store
3. Tell worker you want to see how the file looks on that machine
4. Plug into MacPro or any of the higher end machines.
5. Load file, view on Mac in Keynote, and make a few silly comments.
6. File > Save as... back onto thumbdrive
7. Profit.
