The save as webpage options are not available in PowerPoint 2010


When you try to save a presentation as a webpage in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, the following Save as type options are not available in the Save As dialog box:

  • Web Page (.htm;.html)
  • Single File Web Page (.mht;.mhtml)


To work around this issue, use the PowerPoint object model. This method provides compatibility with older add-ins and macros, and enables you to save the file as *.htm or *.mht.

This method to save a PowerPoint file as a webpage (*.htm; *.html) to the desktop uses the ppSaveAsHTML argument for the *.htm file format. It does not include the msoFalse argument to embed True Type fonts.

To save your file as a webpage, follow these steps:

  1. In PowerPoint 2010, open the presentation that you want to export to HTML.

  2. Press Alt+F11 to open Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications.

  3. Press Ctrl+G to open the Immediate pane.

  4. In the Immediate pane, type the following command, and then press Enter:

    ActivePresentation.SaveAs "<Drive>:\users\<username>\desktop\<filename>.htm", ppSaveAsHTML, msoFalse


    • In this command, replace <Drive>:\users\<username>\desktop\<filename>.htm` with the location where you want to save your file as a webpage.
    • If you want to save the file as a single webpage in the *.mht or *.mhtml file format, replace the htm extension at the end of the file name with mht, and replace ppSaveAsHTML with ppSaveAsWebArchive. For example: ActivePresentation.SaveAs "<Drive>:\users\<username>\desktop\<filename>.mht", ppSaveAsWebArchive, msoFalse
