Flash has become an integral part of the internet nowadays. Be it mobile phones or online applications almost anything that we use are flash compatible. The advantage of flash is that it is extremely light and can be easily published on the internet in minutes. In this tutorial you will be learning how to import a flash .swf file and play it from your Presentation slide using Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

Before we begin you would have to install Standalone flash player on your computer to play .swf files. You can download it from here.

Step 1: Open a New PowerPoint Presentation

Click the Microsoft Office icon and select New. This would create a blank powerpoint file for us to work with. Alternately you can open an existing presentation and select the slide where you want to insert the flash object.

Step 2: Goto PowerPoint Options

Click on the Microsoft office icon and select Powerpoint Options from the List to open the powerpoint option window.
