Step 2: Highlight the PowerPoint file, click “F2” (or right click and select "Rename") and change the name of the presentation by adding a .zip to the end. (e.g. filename.pptx.zip).

Step 3: Click “Yes” if the following dialog box appears after changing the name.

Step 4: Unzip the file and open it. You can find a “ppt” folder in it. Open the “media” folder in “ppt” folder, you will find all the images inserted into PowerPoint.
