Basic tasks in Word Web App

With Word Web App you use your web browser to create, view, and edit the personal documents that you store on SkyDrive. If your organization or college has an Office 365 plan or SharePoint site, start using Word Web App by creating or storing documents in libraries on your site.

Share documents online

Because your document is online, you can share it by sending a link instead of an email attachment. People can read it in their web browser or mobile device.

Click File > Share > Share with People.

Comment in the browser

A comment balloon shows where comments have been made in the doc.

To make a comment, select some text, click Comments at the top of the web app, and then click New Comment. Reply to comments, and check off items you’ve addressed.

Edit in the browser

If you try to type in the document and nothing happens, you’re probably in Reading view. Switch to Editing view: click Edit Document > Edit in Word Web App. Type and format text, add pictures, adjust the layout of the page, and more. For more advanced editing click Open in Word.

Work together on the same doc

Word Web App shows you who is working on the document, and alerts you when they’ve made changes. They can be working in Word Web App, Word 2010 or later, or Word for Mac 2011.
