You need to embed the pptx in the SharePoint site page to force run it.
1. Upload your document to the document library on the SPO site
2. Open the document in a browser rendering mode – should be default in SPO
3. Click File -> Share -> Embed.

Thanks for you reply. Unfortunately, this doesn't give the desired effect. I want the users to progress through the slides using the actions buttons. The document needs to launch in Slide Show view, in kiosk mode to acheive this.

Thanks for your reply, but I've tried that as well.
I originally saved my PPTX as a PPSX, because I wanted the file to launch as a PowerPoint Show. I saved it in Kiosk mode, because I wanted my users to click the Actions Buttons in order to progress throught the slides. Unfortunately, when I put a link to it in SharePoint, it just opens in Normal View instead of Slideshow View. I tried embedding it, but is disables the kiosk aspect of it.
If I could just get it to launch in the desktop application in a PowerPoint show. I've seen in other forums that you just need to add a bit of text at the end of the URL. Something like PowerPointView=PowerPointShow, but I don't know what prefixes it.

I too am facing a similar problem. I just want a direct link to the PPSX to open directly in slide-show mode. But, the recent changes in link generation has killed that.

@Abhimanyu Singh I also posted a uservoice suggestion. https://powerpoint.uservoice.com/forums/270149-powerpoint-online/suggestions/33709801-create-a-share...

Found this at the documentation for PowerPoint.
We are having the same situation here at the company.

@Rhian Howell Another way to make this work is to use the File Viewer web part on a SharePoint page. Insert web part on page--locate file to view. The page will display with the PowerPoint show in kiosk view. The action links will work.

I found the easiest way is to achieve this is to save your presentation as a Windows Media Video, then upload that version to Sharepoint.
Hope this helps.
