Office Online gets improved reading view, file management and more

Office Online is getting even better in 2015. Office Online offers web access to Microsoft’s popular productivity suite online, with the documents being saved in the cloud for easy access anytime, anywhere. It doesn’t offer the complete set of features offered by the desktop version, but it can easily handle most of the tasks for a normal user.

Here are some of the new features to look for:

Enhanced reading experience

To make the Reading View easier to use we updated the toolbar so that the Edit, Print, Share and Comments commands are now one click away and more the advanced tools, such as Translate or Download a file, are easier to find.

Also, now you can print faster and easier by enabling direct printing of PDF files from Word Online without having to first download the file.

More options to save and manage your files

Save As options have expanded to provide you additional file management options that we think you will appreciate.

  • Save As—Saves a copy of the file to your OneDrive. You can to select a new location and name for the file if desired.
  • Rename—Helps you easily change the file name.
  • Download a Copy—Allows you to save a copy of the file outside of your OneDrive onto computer or any attached storage device like a flash drive.
  • Download as PDF—Converts your file format to a PDF and then gives you the same choices as “Download a Copy.”

Remember, Word Online automatically saves your changes in real time to OneDrive.
