    You should be able to select the .exe file when using "Open with" context menu from a .pps file to set PowerPoint as the default app.

    In Open with, you should be able to scroll down and/or click on More apps for a Look for another app on this PC link to be able to browse to and select the .exe.

    Do you see "Look for another app on this PC" when you click on "More apps" and scroll down?

    Thanks again Brink!

    I tried that earlier and couldn't find the .exe file, and of course forgot about it.
