How To Change MS Office Document Format To OpenDocument In OneDrive

Office documents by default, when created on OneDrive are of the type .docx, .pptx and .xlsx (MS Word, Powerpoint and Excel).

These default formats can be changed to OpenDocument format though (.odt, .odp, .ods).

Here is how :

Access OneDrive and click on “Get More Storage” from the lower left corner.
