Open PowerPoint and go to the Home tab -> New Slide -> Choose Slide from Outline.
Step 2: In the Insert Outline dialog box, select the Word file you want to convert to PowerPoint and click Insert.

Method 2: Online Conversion from Word to PowerPoint Using the Convertio Website
If you want the entire text content to be transferred from Word to PPT without much editing, this method using the conversion from DOC to PPTX is for you. Although this online conversion method from Word to PowerPoint is much faster, it is not recommended over Method 1 because it is not perfect and may have font errors, unless your document is in English.
Step 1: Access the Convertio website.
Step 2: Click on File and upload the Word file you want to convert. You can select one or multiple different files and also upload files from Google Drive or Dropbox.
Step 3: Choose the conversion option from Word (DOC) to PowerPoint, then click Convert and wait for a moment.
Now you just need to open the downloaded PowerPoint file and you will see the entire content of the Word file on the slides.
