Saving documents on flash drive.

Frequent Contributor

When using the word online, can I save the documents on a flash drive instead of one drive?

No, you can only save the documents online, to OneDrive or SharePoint site.

Yes you can... but you need to download the file first.

 

Go to File, > Save As > Download a Copy (Which will then download a copy to your machine/device)

 

Locate the downloaded copy and then you can transfer the file to the flash-drive using

Copy + Paste

Cut + Paste

Drag + Drop

 

Any files stored on the Flash-drive will not be able to be shared.

@Vasil Michev It should be a choice to save documents in other place since the web version of office is only online and might need the documents offline.

@AlexWaterton I will try that suggestion. If I save it to the flash drive, does it have to be opened in the web version of office or still need the software version?
