New Look: Office Online Editor

FilesAnywhere has incorporated the Microsoft Office Online editor which allows users to edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents without the hassle of downloading and re-uploading them.

(Note : Office Online does not support editing of older version (1997-2003) MS Office files (xls, doc, ppt). Only the newer versions (xlsx, docx and pptx) are supported. Older versions will be opened in the PDF viewer instead.)
