  1. Click the folder in which you would like to create a new document.

  2. On the Home tab, click New Document and then click the type of document you want to create from the available options.

  3. The new document opens in its application type.

  4. Edit the document as needed and then save the document (CTRL+S).

    In the Save As dialog box, note that the path is to a folder on the SharePoint server.

    The new document is added to the document library in the SharePoint workspace and synchronized on the SharePoint site.

About creating new documents while you’re offline

You can create new documents while you’re not on your network. However, you will need to save these documents locally until the next you’re connected. By default, the Save As dialog box prompts you to save the new document to your local "Documents" folder. Later, when you connect again, you can add the new document to the SharePoint workspace.
