Save a copy of a Word Online doc in the cloud

Documents save automatically to OneDrive while you work in Word Online. Saving a copy of your document online means you'll be able to work on the copy in Word Online.

While you're editing your document (in Editing View), go to File > Save As, and click Save As, and then save a copy with its own name.


  • OneDrive automatically keeps track of the previous 25 versions of a document, so you might not want to store multiple copies. To restore an older version, right-click the document on your OneDrive site, and click Version history.

  • To change the name of your document quickly, click its name in the title bar and type a new name.
