[Solved] HOW TO: Download and Save Slideshare Presentations That is Disabled by the Author?

If you stumbled on SlideShare website, I'm pretty sure you'll get fascinated with some eye-catching title and presentation. Well, if you are like me, then you might want to download and save it to your desktop instead. It's a good way to view though but the problem here is NOT all presentations were available to download this is because of the author set those presentations to disable it.

Now, this is a kind of interesting topic, like, I really have a headache especially on those presentations that were disabled by the author. Same to you right? I cannot download nor save it. One solution is to PM(private message) the author but it may a waste of time since you really need the presentation as soon as possible. You know, I did some research and  Google just to look for the answers. 

Save disabled by the author
Yes, I got some solutions perhaps, but it is out-dated and very complicated. Thus, those steps were not intended to regular users. However, if you are curious to type person, you may try those, but here I'll show you perhaps an easy one solution.

Before we start downloading those Disabled Presentations. We must have a basic knowledge of where we are up to. Since we wanted to download a presentation from Slideshare, therefore, we must know what it is.

Slideshare is dubbed as the world's largest community for sharing presentations online. That said, we must be able to download all presentation right? However, Slideshare offers a service to upload and share(public and private). Some general files were Word Documents, Powerpoints, & Adobe PDF.

Now, put up our sleeves and get started. By the way, you might think that the output here is in the PDF or PPT file format, no it is only an IMAGE. sorry.

Requirements:
HOW TO: Download Slideshare Presentations That is Disabled by the Author?

Option 1:

If you have plenty of patience, then you might try this method.

The Use of Screenshot. Oh yes, you manually screenshot all PAGES in a precise presentation. 

How to screenshot?
In your keyboard,

Steps
  1. View impressive yet disabled save presentation
  2. press print screen SysRq key in the window then
  3. go to your image processing program( MSpaint)
  4. Paste it (Ctrl + V)
  5. Cut or crop desired image
  6. then SAVE(Ctrl+S) desired file.
Tip: For a better view, first make the presentation FULLVIEW and start pressing screenshots. However, what if you have 200 pages in a single performance? 

Option 2:
Option 1 considered to be the LAST RESORT. Likewise, it is so tedious to screenshot manually and then edit then save. With this, though, it is quite complicated, but if you just FOLLOW these steps then you can achieve your goal to get and keep the presentation
