Opening Online Files Locally

You can open the web application version of an Office file using your Office 2010 desktop version to take advantage of the full feature set of the program. For example, you can open the changed file and make more complex changes, save it directly back online (the default), or you can save it under another name, or use other options like those in Backstage view.
