With OneDrive, you can get to your Office documents from any PC, Mac, tablet or phone.
To create an Office document using Office Online, just go to the OneDrive website, tap or click Create on the bar at the top, then choose the type of file you want to create. When you tap or click an Office document on the OneDrive website, it automatically opens in Office Online. The Office Online programs preserve your document formatting, so you can make quick edits without worrying about messing up how the document looks.
When you use OneDrive, you can share documents with other people and all work on the same copy instead of sending different versions back and forth by email. Your classmates, friends or colleagues can use Office Online for free to view or edit the documents, even if they don't have Office installed. With OneDrive, you can even work on documents with other people at the same time without creating conflicts. For more information about sharing files in OneDrive, see Sharing files and folders and changing permissions.
For info about working on OneDrive documents using Office 2013, see Use OneDrive with Office 2013.
When you or someone else makes changes to a document, OneDrive keeps track of the versions automatically, so you don't need to store multiple versions of the same document. To view, restore or download previous versions of a document, select the checkbox in the top-right corner of the document, tap or click Manage, then tap or click Version history.
To view an older version, select it under Older versions, then tap or click Restore or Download.
