What’s the difference between Word Favorites group and Office Favorites group?

Before telling you how to add a saved document or file into a group in Microsoft Office applications with Office Tab, I want to let you know there are 2 types of Favorites group within Office Tab as shown in the below screenshot.

doc group 1

In Microsoft Word application, you will have the Word Favorites and Office Favorites. What’s the difference between Word Favorites and Office Favorites? If you add a saved document or file into a Word Favorites group, the Word Favorites group is only visible and available in Word application. If you add a saved document or file into an Office Favorites group, the Office Favorites group is visible and available in all Office applications which have Office Tab supported. For example, I have 2 saved documents (Document A and Document B) open in Word, and I add the Document A into Word Favorites group (Word) and add the Document B into Office Favorites group (Office) in Word as shown in the below screenshots.

Document A locating at Word Favorites group (Word):

doc group 2

Document B locating at Office Favorites group (Office):

doc group 3

As shown in the above screenshots, both the Word Favorites group (Word) and Office Favorites group (Office) is visible and available in Word application. But if you open the Excel application, you will only see the Office Favorites group (Office) in it as shown in the below screenshot. If you click on the Document B or click on Open this group command in the Office Favorites group (Office) in Excel, it will open the document in Word application directly.

Only the Office Favorites group (Office) is visible and available in Excel:
