How do I Edit my Pages?

To edit a page, you must first find the page in your library. There should be an option in the menu on the left hand side of your screen labeled Pages. This will take you to a list of available pages. Once you see the page in this menu, you will be able to edit it. Screenshot of the Office 365 online SharePoint menu with a red box around the Pages option, and a red arrow pointing towards the Pages option.
