I keep getting a message on my iMac that says Powerpoint is not optimized for my Mac. How can I resolve this?



Hi John,

Thanks for reaching out to us. Effectively you are using older Microsoft office software (32Bit) on a 64-bit operating system which starting last year, will no longer support 32Bit programs. Essentially sometime in the near future, this office program will cease to be supported entirely and may stop working. If you are not at that stage then you may as well just ignore the popup but keep in mind that the day will come soon where you will need a new version of Microsoft powerpoint.

If you would prefer not to rebuy, Google Slides does a very good impression and offers some additional good features.

Here is an article we wrote for our newsletter last year:
