How do I use Office Apps for Android?

It's actually really easy! Office Android apps (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote) are all simplified versions of their desktop counterparts; if you have any experience with Office programs, you should be able to figure out Office for Android.


When you open an Office for Android app, you will start in a window with many templates for what you want to create. Just select a template and start working on your file!

You can also open a saved file that you've already been working on from the Recent tab or under the Open menu. You have a choice of opening it from your Android tablet (if saved on it) or adding other locations such as OneDrive for Business or a personal OneDrive to receive, edit files from, and save to. A reminder: all students have 1TB of storage space they can utilize from their email accounts with OneDrive for Business!
