Using the Office Web Apps

You can use the Office Web Apps to view and edit your own documents as well as ones that others have elected to share with you. Regardless of whether you’re viewing or editing a document, the Office Web Apps works much like Office:

  • Each Web App features the tabbed Ribbon interface introduced in Office 2007 (see C in “About the Office Web Apps”). Within each tab (such as Home or Insert), commands are organized into groups based on similarity of function.
  • ToolTips appear for many of the Ribbon icons A.
  • A. Although you’ll be familiar with most icons from having used Office 2013, many display a ToolTip when you rest the cursor on them

  • Click the File tab B to reveal a menu of file-related commands, such as saving a copy of the document, printing, and opening the document in Office.
  • B. Click the File tab to view a variant of Office’s Backstage.

  • Certain commands, such as Help, present dialog boxes.
  • Limited contextual menus are provided. If you click a cell in Excel, for instance, you can cut, copy, paste, or create a hyperlink.
