Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this as I'm new here and really not very technically minded! I have lots of word documents saved to Onedrive and have a new laptop, but when I open them in the new laptop the formatting is all out. Any ideas? Thanks!

Do you mean just the formatting of paragraphs and the spacing? Check what layout you are using. Web layout might remove this stuff, switch to Print layout.

Info on how to change layouts/views here:

If you mean more than that (ie: fonts, bold, italic, etc) , then what version of Word were these documents created in, and what version of Word are you using now?

The formatting of a Word document is set by many items, including the default printer.
Sometime when a different printer is set as the default, the non printed areas are smaller or larger, which will affect the display of the files.

You also did not tell us what versions of Word is on each machine?
