I have a the 30 day trial of Microsoft Office. I'm having trouble opening a Word document from an online source. I've tried dragging the Word logo onto Office, and just clicking but it 'aint having it. This may be a blindingly obvious question, but can anyone help as I'm new to the Mac world?

    Have you launched MS office standalone (meaning just double clicking it to run?) The first time you run it you may have to agree to a license thing etc. That could be it.

    I've been a fool. Beneath the internet pages I'd opened hundreds of word documents I just couldn't see them.



    Thanks anyway.
