Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system, though not very noticeable, has a few features that set it apart from smartphones running iOS and Android. For most business users, the highlight will probably be the free version of Office available on every Windows Phone device. With it, users can view presentations created with Microsoft’s PowerPoint application and view and edit documents in Word and Excel.
Unfortunately, Microsoft, in its quest to make things easier for consumers, has not made it clear how users should sync their documents. Here’s how to sync documents to Windows Phone Using SkyDrive
Save the document to your desktop or local hard drive. In our example, the name of our document Test Certificate.
Go to SkyDrive.com and enter the username and password you use for your Windows Phone Device.
open your documents The folder in your SkyDrive cloud storage.
Drag and drop your document from your desktop to the folder on your SkyDrive.
Unlock your Windows Phone and tap to open Office center. Orange, boxy tile.
Tap in the Office hub. SkyDrive under Location.
Scroll to find the document you most recently uploaded to SkyDrive. The entire list is in alphabetical order.
Tap to open the document. In our example, this is the Test Document.
You have synced your first document from SkyDrive to your Windows Phone. From there, you can choose to edit these documents and save them locally on your phone, or make changes and sync them to SkyDrive for use on other Windows Phones or your PC.
Note that only certain document types currently work on Windows Phone. Today this includes PowerPoint presentations, all Excel workbooks and Word documents. It’s also important that you approach document creation and editing in Office on Windows Phone the same way you would any other mobile app. It’s not full-featured, and even some styles in Word documents won’t work in any other version of Office besides the traditional app.
