  • What's new in the most recent release of Office?

    The familiar Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include updated features that help you create, communicate and work even more efficiently from virtually anywhere.

    In addition to updating the traditional Office suites, we've developed subscription versions of Office for home and school, specifically designed for the way you use Office today. Each of these subscriptions include the latest versions of Office applications like Word, Excel and PowerPoint, for PC or Mac. Plus offerings such as Skype world minutes and online storage with OneDrive.

  • What's the difference between Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

    Microsoft Office is still the name we use for our familiar productivity software.

    Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In this release all the Office 2013 suites, such as Office Home & Student 2013, include the latest versions of the Office applications, for use on a single PC.

    We use the name "Office 365" for products that include features enabled over the internet, such as additional online storage with OneDrive or Skype world minutes for home use. Office 365 business plans include features such as Lync web conferencing and hosted email for businesses. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, Office 365 University, and Office 365 Small Business Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis. Subscription terms vary by product.

    Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. Active subscribers receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

    Here are some examples of products that use the Office or Office 365 name:

Buying Office

  • How do I know if my computer can run the latest Office?

    You'll need Windows 7 or later, or Mac OS X version 10.6 or later to successfully run Office on your PC or Mac. For more information see www.office.com/information.
  • What's a Microsoft account, and why do I need it for my Office software?

    Your Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and a password that you use to sign in to services like Hotmail, Messenger, OneDrive, Windows Phone, Xbox LIVE, or Outlook.com. If you use an email address and password to sign in to these or other services, you already have a Microsoft account - but you can also sign up for a new account if you prefer.

    With this release of Office, you must be signed in with your Microsoft account to start an Office subscription and to install and manage your Office software. You may also need to sign in with a Microsoft account when you install the latest Office 2013 suites.

    Please note that some subscription benefits, such as additional storage with OneDrive, are linked to the Microsoft account that is used to manage your subscription.

    Any time you want to install Office on another PC or Mac, choose a new language for an installation, or make other changes to your account, simply return to www.office.com/myaccount and sign in with your Microsoft account. Remember - the Microsoft account you use to sign up for Office is the same account you'll use to manage your Office subscription.

Benefits of Office

  • How do I make sure I always have the latest Office applications?

    Office 365 customers with an active subscription always get the newest versions of the Office applications when they are available. When we release a new version of Office, you will be notified that you have the option to update your software to the latest version.
  • Can I install Office on my Mac?

    If you have an active Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, or Office 365 University subscription, and available installs, you can install Office applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook on your Mac. OneNote for Mac is available as a separate download from the Mac App Store. The applications available for Mac users and the version numbers may be different from those available for PC users.

    Current Office application versions for Office 365 are Office 2013 for Windows and Office 2011 for Mac. Customers with an active subscription will be entitled to the newest versions when available.

  • Will Office be identical on a PC, a Mac, and a mobile device?

    No, Office applications are tailored to work best on each platform and device. The Office applications available for Mac users and the version numbers may be different from those available for PC users.

  • For which devices will Office be available?

    Office supports PCs or Windows tablets running Windows 7 or higher, Macs with Mac OS X 10.6 or higher, and iPads running iOS 7.0 or higher. For information about mobile devices, see www.office.com/mobile.

  • Can people with another Office version open documents I create with Office 365 or an Office 2013 application?

    Yes, a person with a previous version of Microsoft Office can easily open documents created with the latest release of Office.

    Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 365, or Office 2013 users can open documents created using the latest release of Office applications without any additional action.

    Customers using earlier versions of Office may need to download and install a compatibility pack.

About OneDrive

  • What is OneDrive?

    OneDrive is a service that enables you to upload files to storage in the cloud and then access them from a computer or phone. You can use OneDrive to store documents, notes, photos, music, videos or other types of file.

    OneDrive simplifies sharing. You can send photos and files through email, send a short link to them in a text message, or post them to a social network, your website, or your blog - all right from OneDrive.

    There's also a desktop app for OneDrive you can install that creates a folder on your PC or Mac that automatically syncs with your cloud folder, so you can access your files offline.

  • How much OneDrive storage do I get with my Office subscription?

    All OneDrive users receive 15 GB of storage with OneDrive for free. Additional storage can be purchased if needed.

    Customers with an active Office 365 Personal or Office 365 University subscription receive an additional 1 Terabyte of OneDrive storage, per subscription. Additional storage is not available during trial periods.

    Customers with an active Office 365 Home subscription receive an additional 1 Terabyte of OneDrive storage per user, up to 5 users. An Office 365 Home subscriber can share their subscription benefits with up to four members of their household, and each member who is added to the subscription receives an additional 1 Terabyte of OneDrive storage, plus installs against available ones.

    Additional storage is not available during trial periods.

    The additional 1 Terabyte of OneDrive storage is applied to the OneDrive account that is linked to the Microsoft account used to create the Office 365 subscription account, and the Microsoft accounts of the household members who have been added to the subscription.

  • To which Microsoft account should I sign in to use OneDrive?

    To access documents stored on OneDrive, sign in to Office with the Microsoft account that you used to set up Office 365. If you have shared your Office 365 Home subscription with other members of your household, they should sign in with their Microsoft account. You can also sign in to OneDrive directly at OneDrive.com.

  • Are my documents stored on OneDrive also available offline?

    With the OneDrive desktop app installed on your computer, your documents are available offline without any action required from you. The OneDrive desktop app creates a folder on your computer that automatically syncs documents between your OneDrive storage in the cloud and your computer, so you can work on your documents offline and be assured that they are always in sync.

  • What happens to the documents I have stored in OneDrive when my subscription expires?

    If you cancel your subscription or if it expires, you can still access and download all your files by signing in to OneDrive directly using the Microsoft account you used to set up Office 365. You do lose the additional storage so you must save your files elsewhere or buy more OneDrive storage if your OneDrive account exceeds 15 GB of free storage.

  • I deactivated the subscription sharing for a household member I was sharing my subscription with. What happens to the documents they stored in OneDrive?

    Their documents will remain accessible to share and download. If they have reached or exceeded their free 1 Terabyte storage limit, they won't be able to add any further documents. They will have the option to access and edit their documents saved on OneDrive using Office Online. They may save their OneDrive documents to another computer or disk drive at any time.

    The 32-bit version of Office is installed by default. Even if your computer is running a 64-bit version of Windows, we recommend that you install the 32-bit version of Office, because it is more compatible with the applications and add-ins that work with Office.
