How do I open and save files?


  • CrossOver Chrome OS applications connect to your device’s file system through the Downloads folder.
  • Opening and saving files differs depending on the application being used.

Microsoft Office 2010 and 2016


  • To open a file from the Downloads folder on your machine, make sure the application (such as Microsoft Word 2010) is already open and then double-click on the application in the Downloads folder.

  • Alternatively, you can open the application and then use the File > Open dialogue to open a file.

Other Applications


  • Most documents can only be opened from within the application itself. Open the application and use the File > Open dialogue to open the document.

* Once a document has been saved, it will appear in the Downloads folder.
