I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT COMPUTER SOFTWARE/HARDWARE/CODES AND ALL THAT CONFUSING STUFF OK?? I would really love some help - I'm trying to install SharePoint so I can edit all my documents from multiple devices without having to constantly put new versions of my documents on the cloud. (Will it even do that?!) Anyway, I went and installed designer and it was like NO you have to install foundation so you can create a new sharepoint thingo!! So I did, and I installed the prerequisites but then it was like well NO you can't install this because you don't have windows server 2008 r2 SP1!! what does that mean???!! can I get that? SHOULD I get that??? How can I get around this? Also my computer details are this:

Hi,

SharePoint is designed to run on a SERVER operating system. It will not run on a client operating system.

Simply speaking you cannot use Sharepoint on your PC to edit you documents, cause it is used on a server which is a device that is used to provide a service to other computers, it is a centralised unit.

I have a question for you, what are you trying to do with your documents? use and edit them on different devices?

So does that mean there's no way I can use sharepoint? I feel so tech-dumb right now XD Well I just want to be able to edit a word document on my iPad or any other device where I'm logged into my Office account, and then those edits show up on any other device I'm using Word on. Does that make sense?

To contextualise, I switch between using my iPad and using my laptop at school, and I want all my documents to be on BOTH of those devices constantly with the most recent versions. Currently I'm having to email all my documents between devices after each class and it SUCKS. I thought maybe a Sharepoint would fix this???

I think so, but isn't that the one where you have to upload your documents to the drive every time you change them?

Once you have all the documents present in One Drive you can access the documents on any devices as well as edited and save them back to the One Drive and your documents are safe as One drive is cloud based and can be accessed on any device if you know your username and password.

Awesome! So will it save to the drive as well as the device? Or do I have to choose one or the other?

So let's say I'm doing an assignment on my iPad - I create the word doc etc. and then go to save it on One Drive. If I then have to work offline (for some reason) one day, will I still be able to access the document, even though its on the drive and not local? Thank you so much for all your help by the way :)
