Microsoft Adds New Features to Office Live

officelive-logo Microsoft has added some new features to Office Live Workspace service along with 5GB of storage space. Office Live Workspace allows you to access your files and documents through a browser on the web. You can store just about any files (except executables) in the Office Live cloud.

According to Skip Chilcott on  the Office Live Workspace blog the changes include:


  • Folders —To simplify organization, now you can use folders to manage files within workspaces. We know many of you were creating new workspaces whenever you needed to group related documents, so we’re really happy about this feature.
  • Cut/Copy/Paste—Want to copy a document or file to another workspace? We’ve replaced the File/Move feature with Cut/Copy/Paste to make it even easier to manage your files.
  • More storage—We are increasing your storage capacity to 5GB. You keep telling us you need more so ask no more!
  • Eight new languages — We are expanding to Eastern Europe with the addition of Hungarian, Romanian, Lithuanian, Serbian Latin, Ukrainian, Slovak, Latvian, and Slovenian. That brings our total to 28 languages in 52 countries! Be sure to tell your friends, family, and colleagues around the globe to check out Office Live Workspace.

You should also install the Office Live Update which includes the Office Live Add-In for Microsoft Office and the plug-in for Firefox and of course you need a Windows Live sign-in to access the features.
