5.8. Viewing your Documents in OneDrive

For documents saved in OneDrive if you open them from the file explorer version they will open as normal. However, if you are using the web version there are a few different ways to view the document.

The First viewing method is a web-based version of office programs. When clicking on the document you wish to open a new window will open.

This new window will bring the document up inside of a simplified version of one of the office programs. Shown below is a document pulled up in the web version of Microsoft Word.

The second is to open the document in the Microsoft program installed on your computer. There are two ways to open the document normally.

The first option is select the document you wish to open and click on the icon made of three vertical dots. It will look like the following image:  

Then select the option called Open. Inside of open there will be an option call “Open in app”. That option will open the document as normal.

The second way is to download the document and then open the downloaded document as normal. As shown in the image below.
