Microsoft PowerPoint quit unexpectedly on Mac is one of the most common issues that users may encounter when running PowerPoint. Some other errors, like the whole screen turning transparent, are also seen. And you are right to be concerned because the main reason for these problems is that your PowerPoint files are lost accidentally.

To recover lost PowerPoint files, you can try EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro to get your files back:

Step 2. When the scanning is finished, go and view the scanning results on the left panel. Now, choose "Documents" to find your lost files. You can filter them according to file format, date, and so on.

Step 3. Double-click the files to preview the recovered files. Choose "Recover" to save all the recovered PowerPoint files at one stand.

You can also try utilizing the Repair Disk Permissions option to see if it helps:

  • Click "Utilities" on the Go menu and start the Disk Utility on Mac.
