    how to use flash drive to access and edit documents?

    I purchased the TF300T tablet and docking station hoping I can leave my laptop home when I travel. How can I access my documents and edit them? I downloaded Kingsoft app, but it opens the documents in gibberish. Should I pay for the Microsoft app? Any help to this low-techie would be greatly appreciated.

    I think that splashtop is included in the my cloud app which is included as built in applications on the tf300. You use this by installing splashtop on your pc, either desktop or laptop. No matter where you are at even on the other side of the world, if you can access the internet, you can work directly with your pc just as if you were actually working on it. I actually pull up the word processor Word Perfect and all my documents from my pc via splashtop. It will pull up any program that you have on your pc. You can work with those programs just as if you were working on your pc. You can send emails from your pc, and you can include any attachments that you create on your pc directly from your tablet. It makes your tablet like it was a work station of your pc. You can google splashtop and read about it. You can also download the splashtop program on your pc from the home page of splashtop. If the my cloud program on your tf300 does not include splashtop, you can download splashtop on you tablet from the play store.
    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Interesting, what kind of documents were they? Did they have advances functions and such?

    I have never had much issue with simple documents and excel files, but I know some of my more advanced stuff does not work well.

    Not sure if the M$ app if that is better.

    Perhaps I am not grasping this but I have just loaded a flash-drive with a .docx document inserted it into the tablet, opened Polaris Office, selected 'Local storage' from the Polaris Office front page, then navigated to the 'USBdisk1 and imported the document and was able to edit it etc.

    Nope, you have grasped it perfectly.

    I guess (as does Fred) that the documents mentioned by the OP may be complex in some way...
