    Just curious. I can open all my files from the OneDrive for Business app, even the pdf files. Why would I want to add another app just to open specific file types? I’m not trying to be rude but maybe there is a reason I am unaware of? Thanks!

      Hi Paula! Through Acrobat DC, you can not only access all your OneDrive files, but you can edit and save them all back to OneDrive. This integration is handy if you need use Acrobat to edit a file stored in OneDrive, but don’t want to go through the hassle of downloading, editing, saving, and reuploading. Please feel free to share any further questions! ^AR
