To use them, two possibilities:

- Launch Microsoft PowerPoint from the Run menu by pressing [Windows] + [R] and then typing:

Re: Discover the secret commands in PowerPoint 2007

The available commands are:

Use this command after a crash of PowerPoint while you were full up or full slideshow. The software will then load all by trying to pick up where the program has crashed.

- POWERPNT/S name_of_file.pptx
Lance PowerPoint file with the designated and automatically launch mode "Slide Show", that is the way "Slideshow."

- POWERPNT/C name_of_file.pptx
Lance PowerPoint conference mode "NetMeeting" by loading the file automatically designated.

Lance PowerPoint without displaying the Welcome screen (the splash-screen ") and without opening the document. Often used by the developers of macros and extensions for Office.

- POWERPNT/M Name_FileMacros.pptm Name_Macro
Lance PowerPoint file with the designated macro (Name_FileMacros.pptm) and requests the execution of the macro designated (Name_Macro) from the start. This is very useful when creating interactive presentations with or macros that you want to auto-execute.

- POWERPNT/O name_of_file1.pptx, name_of_file2.pptx, name_of_file3.pptx
Lance PowerPoint and orders the automatic loading of the file list specified. This is very useful when you must make a public presentation using PowerPoint files.
