Using Microsoft Web Applications

Microsoft Web applications are Web versions of popular Microsoft Office programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. These scaled-back online versions are not only free but they also allow for collaboration because the documents can be shared by a work team.

To access Microsoft Web applications, first register for a free Windows Live account at http://www.live.com. In addition to giving you access to the Microsoft applications, Windows Live provides you with an email account, links to Skype, a photo-sharing service, an instant messaging program, and SkyDrive. After registration, use your ID and password to sign into Windows live, then click the link at the top for OFFICE.
