How to edit Microsoft Office documents on Android Phone

This feature is great to have for people that are on the go. Whether you’re a student or business person, instant access to files, along with the ability to add, edit, share documents, is key to success. Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, are widely used by many people. Also, being able to store items in the Cloud, and being able to open them without waiting for a download is an awesome time saver. I currently have the Samsung Galaxy S8, and looking through the apps that came installed on my phone, I didn’t have Office 365, nor was it available as a ‘whole’ in the Google Play Store. I had to individually install each office app, as shown below. Once installed, when accessing a file, such as a Word Docx, my phone then prompts me to choose between the default app installed, which is Hancom Office Editor, or the newly installed Microsoft Office app. Be aware that once you choose which app you want the document to open with, it is then the default, and you would need to go into Settings and locate the app that you want to make changes to:   Locate and click the Default area: You will then find the option to Clear Defaults This will allow you to choose a different app/program the next time you open a document, if need be.   In Microsoft Excel, it can be a bit daunting due to the size limitations of your mobile device, to view the entire spreadsheet. But, if you only need to enter information in cells, or edit a column, this is very useful to...

Today, your greatest information source lies right at your fingertips.  It is the world-wide web (“www” or “web”)! The web is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links and easily accessible through the internet.  Countless “how to’s” and do-it yourself “diy” imaginable is sourced on numerous websites.  And the leading forum specializing in internet-related searches, including webpages, images, videos and more in Google.  Google is the perfect place to find instructions for disassembling and reassembling laptop, Ultrabook, and mobile device repair, and much more.
