Sometimes you receive a Word doc in your email, and you need to view it or print it, and the Gmail file viewer is totally messing up the layout. What to do?
Forward the message to your Office Online email account. It has excellent support for Office docs. You can view the doc and print it without it ever touching your disk.

If you don't have an Office Online email account, but you have Dropbox, you could upload the doc to Dropbox, and from there, you can open it in Office Online.

The good alternative to online services, can be on Windows 10 the installation of Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and PowerPoint Mobile - free Microsoft Universal Applications from Microsoft Store. They can block the active content in documents and run fully in AppContainer. The documents can be printed from those applications, too. The user can also copy the document content and paste to another office application.

Yeah, that works.
