What is Word Online?
Microsoft Word Online lets you make basic edits and formatting changes to your document in a web browser. When you save the document in Word, it is saved on the website where you opened it in Word Online.
The document you open in Word Online is the same as the document you open in the Word desktop app, but some features work differently in the two environments.
Editing in Word Online doesn’t show page formatting, such as margins or page breaks, cover pages, or headers and footers. Additionally, many kinds of objects (ex: images) are displayed as placeholders.
How would I use Word Online?
Create word-processing documents, or edit these documents, when you are not at your computer.
