      A music electronics forum would be the last place I'd ask for microsoft support. Awaiting spam payload.

            Please accept my apologies for publishing this thread here. Actually, I couldn't find of a good location to ask my question, so I submitted it here. Any Windows user who can assist me in resolving the problem. Because the problem was occurring on my Windows machine. If someone can assist me in resolving the problem, I would be grateful.

              I would suggest that you reload the Power Point software.

                If you are asking about "Track Changes", there is no such feature in Power Point. The only thing you can do is to save another copy and then use a "Compare" function that looks at two different files. How to Track Changes in a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation

                  Is there a legitimate reason your email address name doesn't align with your registered name?

                    This question would be more likely answered here:

                    https://www.msofficeforums.com/powerpoint/

                    or multiple other forums that are actually powerpoint related.

                      Thank you very much, TomCarlos, for your invaluable assistance. Actually, I discovered this post online that stated exactly what the article you shared. Anyway, I fixed the problem by following the steps outlined in the article. But now I'm having a problem, the presentation I created isn't opening. There is some kind of error displayed. I'm not sure what the cause could be.

                        Go to the file (using Windows Explorer), right click, select Properties, and see if there is anything blocking the file from opening. Check to make sure the file still says xxxxx.ppt or xxxx.pptx.

                          Maybe there will be a solution at silicophilic that you can post another spam link to. If it said exactly the same as what Tom shared, why did you need to post a link?

                            Like Tom may have indicated, it sounds like a permissions problem.
                            If it was in linux, I would say to make sure the document belongs to the user, and not just root.
                            Not sure how windows does that.
                            Again welcome to the forum.
