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, you can save presentations as an .htm file or as an .mht file by using the PowerPoint object model. This method provides compatibility with older add-ins and macros.

You can also save a file as a webpage (*.htm;*.html) to the desktop without embedding True Type fonts (msoFalse) by using the ppSaveAsHTML argument for the *.htm file format. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In PowerPoint 2010, open the presentation that you want to export to HTML.
  2. Press Alt+F11.
  3. Press Ctrl+G.
  4. In the Immediate pane, type the following, and then press Enter:
    ActivePresentation.SaveAs "<Drive>:\users\<username>\desktop\<filename>.htm", ppSaveAsHTML, msoFalse

    Note To save by using the Single File Web Page (*.mht;*.mhtml) file format, replace htm at the end of the file name with mht, and replace ppSaveAsHTML with ppSaveAsWebArchive.


For more information about the SaveAs method in PowerPoint 2010, go to the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website:
Presentation.SaveAs Method (PowerPoint).

For more information about the files types that can be passed to the SaveAs method, go to the following MSDN website:
