- 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.

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.

- 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.

Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, or Office 365 University: Go to www.office.com/myaccount, click Languages and install options, and then click Additional install options.

- What happens to the documents I have stored in OneDrive when my subscription expires?
As the expiration date approaches, you will receive notifications in the Office applications and via email, alerting you to the upcoming expiration. Once your Office 365 subscription expires, the Office software applications enter read-only reduced functionality mode, which means that you can view or print documents, but you will not be able to create new documents or edit existing documents.
To return to full Office functionality, you can purchase a new subscription or a one-PC version of Office such as Office Home & Student 2013, Office Home & Business 2013, Office Professional, from Office.com or any participating retailer. You could also return to using an older version of Office, or use the free Office Online on OneDrive for basic editing.
Your documents will remain accessible to share and download. If you have reached or exceeded your free 7 GB storage limit, you won't be able to add any further documents. You will have the option to access and edit your documents saved on OneDrive using Office Online. You may save your OneDrive documents to another computer or disk drive at any time.
- What happens when my subscription ends? How can I continue to work with my documents?
- As the expiration date approaches, you will receive notifications in the Office applications and via email, alerting you to the upcoming expiration. Once your Office 365 subscription expires, the Office software applications enter reduced functionality mode, which means that you can view or print documents only, but you will not be able to create new documents or edit existing documents. To return to full Office functionality, you can purchase a new subscription or another version of Office, from Office.com or any participating retailer. You could also return to using an older version of Office, or use the free Office Online on OneDrive for basic editing.
- What if I want to change which devices have Office 365 installed?
- Office 365 Home can be installed on up to five PCs or Macs, plus five tablets for use by your entire household. Office 365 Personal can be installed on one PC or Mac, plus one tablet, for use by one person. Office 365 University can be installed on up to two PCs, Macs, or tablets, for use by one person.

The copy of Office on the PC, Mac, or tablet that was removed from the subscription will revert to reduced functionality mode, but you will not lose the documents that are saved locally on the original device.
- What is my 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.
- 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.
- What is the difference between Office Online and Office on Demand?
- Office Online is best suited for quick viewing and editing. Like Office Online, Office on Demand allows users to access Office and their documents from anywhere. The difference is that Office on Demand can quickly stream the full-featured Office applications on any Internet-connected PC running Windows 7 or higher. Office Web Apps are available across a variety of operating systems, devices and browsers, providing access to Office tools and your documents when working from PCs with earlier versions of Windows, as well as from other platforms.
