Product Questions

  • 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 is the difference between the 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.

  • How do I install Office Home & Student 2013, Office Home & Business 2013, or Office Professional 2013?
  • Go to and follow the onscreen instructions to download the software to your computer. You can install Office on one PC.
  • Can someone open Office 365 or Office documents using earlier versions of Office?
  • 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.

  • How long does it take to download and install Office?
  • Office installs more quickly than ever, thanks to Click-to-Run, a streaming technology that lets you begin to use Office applications before installation is complete. All versions of the new Office use Click-to-Run. The actual download speed depends on the speed of your Internet connection.
  • Should I install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Office?
  • 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. If you do want to install the 64-bit version of Office, you can do so by taking the following steps:

    Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, or Office 365 University: Go to, click Languages and install options, and then click Additional install options.

    Other Office 365 plans: Log into your account at and choose the option to install the 64-bit version of Office.

    It is not possible to install both the 64-bit version and 32-bit versions of Office on the same computer.

  • What is Office on Demand?
  • Office on Demand comes with your Office 365 plan. It allows you to access your documents and settings and lets you use full-featured Office applications on PCs that dont have the latest version of Office installed on them, for example a PC in the library, at a business center, or one that you borrowed from a friend. The full-featured applications are accessible via a web browser, instead of being permanently installed on the PC Streaming speed depends on Internet connectivity speed. Once you close the applications, they are no longer available to other users of that PC. Documents you save to OneDrive will also no longer be available to other users, unless you saved them locally on the computer. You can use Office on Demand on a PC that is connected to the Internet and running Windows 7 or later.
  • 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.
  • Can I use Office languages other than the one I originally purchased?
  • Your Office 365 subscription enables you to install Office in 40 different languages. If you have Office 365 Personal or Office 365 Home you can choose the language to install Office in by visiting Not all languages will be available in all regions. Customer is limited to using Office in two languages at one time.
