- Create a Desktop or Taskbar icon for the online version of Microsoft Word 365
- Make .doc & .docx file types open Word 365 online
I have lost Word 2010 Starter (free, ad-based version offered on limited PCs & laptops) when I had to rebuild a PC. One free option is to use the online version of Word in Office 365. I am using it now, but all my Word files no longer have a default app.
Being able to open a program via icon or double-click on a file is a time-saver. I'm not sure how to set this up, though, for the online version of Word or Excel. Or Outlook, for that matter.
