Is it possible to save a prezi to a y-drive or desktop? I have tried several times and have found that I am unable to open my presentation this way. Any tips?

The problem you're probably encountering is that you're not maintaining the original folder structure. From the .zip file you get when you download a Prezi, be sure to unzip ALL of the contents in the folder to the same location. Trying to access the included .exe without it being able to reference the necessary resources will cause some problems.

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your response. I was infact able to unzip the contents and save the prezi to a zip drive. What I am finding is that I still need internet access to view the presentation. Can I possibly save a prezi and present it without the use of online access? Your response was very helpful!

Make sure that the folders that accompany the .exe also make it on to the same drive, and are placed in the same directory.

Hi Megan,

if you have YouTube videos in the prezi, it still needs internet connection to play those. Everything else doesn't and should work completely off-line. You could use for exampl http://clipgrab.de/en to download the videos from YouTube and insert them as files. See http://prezi.com/learn/insert-video/ for file format and size restrictions.
