Box Desktop Apps – Box for Office

Work Smarter, Not Harder

This add-on lets Windows users open Box files directly from Word, Excel and PowerPoint, then save them to the cloud and share using Box links, not email attachments – all without leaving Office!


  • Open a file already stored on Box: Edit on your desktop, then continue saving to the cloud
  • Open a new or existing file on the desktop: Choose Word, PowerPoint or Excel and save to Box
  • Share files in a snap: Get links to simply share files with anyone, without leaving Office



Box for Office is part of the Box Tool Set. These tools are aimed to facilitate cloud content management.
