The familiar Save As dialog box opens, with a SkyDrive folder as the location
for saving the document.

Windows uploads the file to the folder you selected in SkyDrive.
To see your document on SkyDrive, go to and sign in (if
you’re not signed in already). Find the folder where you uploaded the file and click
it; your document is there.
Tip: You can also get to SkyDrive right from Word. Select File➝Share➝Save to SkyDrive➝Go to
SkyDrive (Alt, F, H, K, Y1). Your default web browser opens and takes you to a sign-in page or, if you’re
already signed in, to your “Recent folders” page.
Saving a Document to SharePoint
SharePoint is what Microsoft calls a “comprehensive content management” system.
In plain English, that means it’s a central location where you can upload, share, and
keep track of files. You can check out a document, work on it, and then check it
back in so others can use it. In principle, SharePoint is similar to SkyDrive, but it’s
typically installed by a corporation’s IT department to serve as a kind of private
employees-only service.
Saving a document to SharePoint works the same way as saving one to SkyDrive.
When you want to upload a document to SharePoint, open the file and then select
File Share Save to SharePoint (Alt, F, H, S). In the right part of the screen, find
and sign into the SharePoint location you want. The Save As dialog box opens,
allowing you to save the document at that location.
Note: Word’s Backstage Share options also let you publish a document as a blog post. For detailed
information about uploading a Word document to your blog, see online Appendix B.
Adding Comments
One of the main reasons for sharing a document is to get feedback. Having several
other pairs of eyes go over your writing can raise issues you need to address, point
out confusing parts, or just shower you with praise. In Word, reviewers provide
feedback in the form of comments that appear in your document’s margin and point to
the relevant parts of your text. It’s kind of like putting a sticky note on the page.
