Downloading an Office Online File

In addition to editing Office Online files in your browser, you also have the ability to download them to your computer. This allows you to open the file in the full Microsoft application, and make edits when offline. 

To download an Office Online file, click the "download file" icon that appears beneath a file name. It looks like a grey rectangle. If you don't see this icon:

  1. Click the file name to open it in Office Online.
  2. Click the "Download" button towards the top right.

Note: If you do not have the ability to edit an Office Online file because you do not own it, you can always download the file and upload it to your Library / Backpack. Then you will own that copy of the file and be able to edit it in Office Online.
