Can't open Microsoft Online files from Dropbox online

New member | Level 2

Everytime I try to open a doc from Dropbox Online into Microsoft Word Online it just opens to a blank page.

I'm on a Dropbox Team.

I have a Microsoft Office Online account through my university (different email to my Dropbox account).

I've tried Chrome and Firefox.

Most importantly, it works fine using another computer (PC) but not my Macbook Pro.

thanks

Hey @MCCA, thanks for reaching out to us and thanks for trying out another browser!

That definitely helps us narrow down our investigation. 

Could you also try again:

  • From an incognito window?
  • After clearing your browser's cache? 
  • Once you make sure that you're not running any third party browser extensions or plugins? 

Let me know how it goes!

Thanks Lusil - I restarted my computer and then it worked again. But will experiment with your suggestions next time this happens as it happens quite often. thanks
