I've seen that we can use MS Word to create new Blog posts. The option is available under Blog Tools > Launch blog program to post

Works fine, word opens with Blog kind of template, and I can publish But after the blog article is published, how do I edit the blog post using word again?


Here is a blog post explaining how you can edit existing posts with Word editor.

I'd recommend using Windows Live Writer (WLW) rather than Word for editing blog posts. Word is really overkill and not specifically designed for blogs like WLW is.

WLW is a free download from Microsoft: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-writer


Using Word 2010

  1. I went through the actions to create a new blog post to get to the Blog UI
  2. Use the "open existing" command
  3. Make edits and "publish" as usual
  • open existing only shows that last blog entries – carl verbiest Jan 25 '18 at 10:48
