After purchase, you can install Office at www.office.com/myaccount. For more information, see the FAQ.

What's the difference between Office 365 plans and Office 2016 suites?

Office 365 plans include the complete suite of Office applications, plus other services that are enabled over the Internet, including extra cloud storage with OneDrive and Skype minutes for home use. With Office 365 you get the full, installed Office experience on PCs, Macs, tablets (including Windows, iPad, and Android) and smartphones. Office 365 plans are available as a monthly or annual subscription. With Office 365, upgrades are always included with your subscription.

Office 2016 suites, including Office Home & Student and Home & Business, include applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote; they are available as a one-time purchase for use on a single PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated; to get the latest version, you must purchase Office again when the new version becomes available.

How can my family use the same license for different accounts?

As long as Office was installed at the top level/applications folder – you can create different user accounts on your device and multiple people can access Office. If Office was installed to one specific users account, a second user will not be able to access when logging in with a different user account. Office 365 Personal is for use on a single device (+1 tablet and 1 phone) so you wouldn’t be able to access it on a second device. Office 365 Home however can be used on up to 5 devices

Once you purchase, do you have to pay a monthly fee?

Depends on which product is purchased.
  • If you purchase a monthly Office 365 subscription – yes, you will be charged monthly
  • If you purchase a yearly Office 365 subscription – no, you will not pay a monthly fee
  • If you purchase a perpetual Office 2016 product – no, this is a one-time purchase

Can I use Office 365 programs when I'm offline?

Yes. You will need internet access to download Office, but not to use the applications once Office is already installed. You do not need to be connected to the Internet to use the Office applications, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, because the applications are fully installed on your computer

What happens to my documents if I end my subscription?

If you choose to let your subscription expire, the Office software applications enter read-only mode, which means that you can view or print documents, but you can’t create new documents or edit existing documents
