Accessing Your Form

The first step to editing your Microsoft Form is to access it. You can do this by going to the Microsoft Forms website and signing in with your Microsoft account. Once you are signed in, you will see a list of all your forms. Select the form you want to edit.

Making Changes

Once you have opened your form, you will see the editing options on the top menu bar. Here, you can make changes to the form title, description, and theme. You can also add new questions, change the order of questions, and delete questions. To make changes to a specific question, click on the question and the editing options will appear on the right side of the screen.

Adding New Questions

To add a new question to your form, click on the “Add question” button on the top menu bar. You will then be prompted to choose the type of question you want to add, such as multiple choice, text, or rating. Once you have selected the type of question, you can enter the question and answer options.

Changing the Order of Questions

If you want to change the order of questions in your form, simply click on the question you want to move and drag it to the desired location. You can also use the “Move up” and “Move down” buttons on the top menu bar to rearrange your questions.

Deleting Questions

To delete a question from your form, click on the question and then click on the trash can icon on the right side of the screen. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion before it is permanently removed from your form.

Previewing Your Form

Before finalizing your changes, it is always a good idea to preview your form to ensure everything looks and functions as intended. To do this, click on the “Preview” button on the top menu bar. This will allow you to see how your form will appear to respondents.
