set documents to display versus download to computer

Hi, does anyone know how to set microsoft products to only open and view the document first without having to download/save to my computer just to open and view it? I want the option. Thank you.

Based on your description, do you mean that you would like to set the permission of the file to just open and view in Onedrive for work or school?

If so, this article "Share OneDrive files and folders" may helps.

Hi Erin, that is not quite what I mean. Let's say for instance, my professor sends me a word document via email. When I click on .docx, I am prompted to save it somewhere on my computer, then it downloads and shows up on my task bar for me to click and open it. I want the option to just be able to view it and download if I choose.
