Hi Klausl,

Looking at the information shared above, what TestScreenName said seems to be absolutely correct. Because Adobe Reader DC is a free application, unless you don't convert or wish to do the conversion Adobe Reader doesn't have a capability of saving any PPT file automatically to pdf. 

You just have set Adobe Reader DC as default app to open all the file formats. So when you are opening any PPT file it opens in Reader.

You may refer to the following help article and make the MS PowerPoin

You may refer to the following help article and make the MS PowerPoint (following the exact same steps as suggested for Reader)  as default app. Associate PDF files to always open in Acrobat or Reader on Windows 10

Hope this helps.

If you load Acrobat DC, it may take over default for some of your file types (extensions). Go to Settings > Apps > Default Apps...scroll down to pptx on the left.column..click the box on the right and reset to Power Point. Good luck.
