I can't quite believe this isn't possible, though I fear it may not be.

I have Windows 7, Office 2010 (or whatever the latest version is) and a Windows Live account.

I want to write a document in Word on my desktop and save it straight to Windows Live. This should be easy. Is it? Does Microsoft support this? It seems like a simple request in 2011.

Any ideas?

Create a great looking document in Office and then switch easily from working on it on your PC or in the browser

Upload documents to use in Office Web Apps

If you have Microsoft Office 2010 you can upload documents directly to your Windows Live SkyDrive from Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Word. On the Save & Send tab in Backstage view, click Save to Web

Hope this helps.

  • Thanks just what I wanted, but its a bit slow and not very well integrated. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

From Wikipedia:

Office Live Workspace is currently not supported on Office 2010. In May 2010, it was announced that Office Live Workspace customers would be moved to Microsoft's SkyDrive service, which offers 25GB of storage and the ability to view and edit documents through Office Web Apps.
