I have Windows office on my old PC, and when i signed into one drive, it doesnt allow me to edit my paper work. I'm not sure if i need to uninstall it from my old computer, to be able to use Word on my MAC. If you have any understanding on this matter please let me know. Thank you for any advice.

    You may be able to use Office for the web to edit your files, it's free.

    If you want to edit in a desktop program, you'll have to install Office on your Mac. It depends on which version of Office your purchased or subscribed to, whether you can install an extra copy.
