Cloud for Home

Cloud computing is delivering new capabilities and features to the home and work environments. Cloud and online services, built on familiar Windows technology, provides access to your documents, connects you with family and friends and enables collaboration across distances.

Benefits

Some of the many benefits of using these Cloud products for home is that they are available from anywhere you have an Internet connection, they are no charge and they are easy to use. Cloud computing offers new opportunities for creating, sharing, and storing documents. Because the documents are stored on servers in the cloud, you and others can collaborate by working in the same document online.

You can store your files using a storage service, such as Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive), which provides enough free storage for thousands of documents, photos, and other files. Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) also makes your password-protected documents available from whenever you're online, directly in your web browser.

How Do I Use These Products and Services?

You can use the free Office Online, which are online companions to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote to access, view, and edit your documents directly from your web browser.

Microsoft Office Word
Microsoft Office Excel
