    Hello, do you need if there is a password needed to open presentation?
    If there is not, you could try the following:

    -- navigate to folder where presentation is
    -- right click on presentation
    -- select properties
    -- on attributes section, uncheck Read-only
    -- click on apply and then ok

    The presentation may be marked as Final in PowerPoint 2007. That protects it against further changes, so you won't be able to edit the file.

    co-authoring functionality in Microsoft Office 2010 makes it possible for multiple users to work productively on the same document.

    To change the attibutes of an individual file, then select Properties. At the bottom of the dialog, is a checkbox that will say Read-only. If it is checked, simply uncheck it, click OK or Apply, and the file will be read-write.
