    How are you suppose to open them though? Chrome OS cannot run Microsoft Word etc.

        My question is how? What program will it be running to open it? Google Docs? Asking because it usually doesn’t format previous docs correctly.

        1. uhmm I am unsure about this.. I will check it and let you know..

    @Dinu, I think he is asking how does Chrome OS view these files as it does not have any native apps such as OFfice 2010.

    1. As far as I can see, it is opened in the browser it self… I saw a screenshot on the forum just now…

      You need the native client enabled from chrome://flags page.

      Exactly! Sorry I should have been more clear.

    What about ODF?

  4. If you are looking for a way to open and edit Microsoft Office and other Window applications files (while online only), you should look at Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables tablet users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

    Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.

    You can choose to run a full Windows desktop or just a specific Windows app, and that desktop or Windows app will appear within a browser tab.
