If coworkers store documents in your organization’s SharePoint library, you can use Word Web App to view them, without having to start Word. Find text you’re interested in. You can even copy and paste from the document.
Go to a document library on your SharePoint site, and then click the link associated with the Word document.
The document opens in Reading view.
Add that last paragraph, from anywhere
The report is almost done; it’s saved in your team’s SharePoint library. You want to finish it up before going home, so you quickly open it in the browser and type the last two paragraphs.
- Go to a document library on your SharePoint site, and then click the link associated with the Word document.
- Click Edit in Browser.
Word Web App switches to Editing view, and the display of the document may change. The content is not altered, however.
- When you are finished, click the File tab, and then click Save.
If you want to make changes to the document beyond what you can do in the browser, do this:
- On the Home tab, click Open in Word.
- In Word, save the document. It is saved back on the SharePoint site.
Print from the browser
The document you print from the browser looks the same as it would if you printed it from Word.
With the document open in Word Web App in Reading view, click the File tab, and then click Print.
Note A PDF viewer is required for printing in Word Web App. If you don’t already have a PDF viewer installed, you will be prompted to download one.
