How To Download Presentation From Google Slides

Google Slides is an incredibly versatile tool that allows users to create, edit, and collaborate on presentations online. While it offers the ability to share and present slides directly within the app, there may be times when you need to download the presentation to your device. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to download your Google Slides presentation.

Step 1: Access Google Slides

First, open your preferred web browser and navigate to Google Slides. You will need to sign in with your Google account. If you do not have one, you will need to create it.

Step 2: Open the Presentation

Once you have accessed Google Slides, you should see a list of your presentations. Click on the presentation you would like to download. This will open the presentation in a new tab.

Step 3: Download the Presentation

Once your presentation has been opened, look for the “File” option located at the top left corner of the page. Clicking on it will open a drop-down menu. In this menu, hover over the “Download” option. This will open another menu with several different file types to choose from.

You can download your presentation in the following formats:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx)
  • OpenDocument Presentation (.odp)
  • PDF Document (.pdf)
  • Plain Text (.txt)
  • JPEG Image (.jpg, current slide)
  • PNG Image (.png, current slide)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg, current slide)

The most commonly used format is .pptx, which will allow you to open the presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Step 4: Save the Presentation

Once you have selected your desired file format, a download will begin. You will be able to find the downloaded file in your device’s designated downloads folder. From there, you can move the file to your desired location.


Downloading a presentation from Google Slides is a straightforward process. It allows you to have a copy of your presentation on your device, which can be useful in situations where you may not have internet access or if you need to present offline. Remember, downloading your presentation does not delete it from Google Slides, so you can continue to edit and collaborate on your presentation online.
