enjoying update

I was so out of date. Really need this update




An Old Friend

I bought this when my new machine would not accept a CD holding and earlier version of Office Home and Student. Although updated it is sufficiently similar to earlier versions for me to adapt easily.





Finding the new one hard to use.

happy user

So good to have it on my laptop and phone




Very many optional features and easy to follow

Having used very old versions for many years, when I purchased my new PC with Windows 10 I had to purchase and download a new version of Office. Although previously I had the 'professional' versions, this time I opted for 'Home and Student' version. ( I am an 80 year old pensioner)

One person found this helpful.





I did not realise how much better it would be after using word for so,this is outstanding.




Not been able to download.

I purchased thiseparately when office was due for renewal on my laptop and then after downloading it is was unable to use it. So I un-install office from my laptop and try and run the file again and it tells me there's an error. Try to download it again and I can't because I only bought the one download. Please help me resolve the issue. Can't afford to buy again.

Great product

Next step up from office 2013,and I love it.




time wasting over the top security

I buy this version of office and it it impossible to install it because it wants to sign into MS account. I create an account and spendan hour going backwards and forwards as they send a code to my email account but it does not appear. Mobilephone does not work here. This over kill security is a massive waste of time and does not work.Find a better way!

Good but not te idealPackage for me

I bought this as an upgrade from office 2003 as I was using office 2010 at work and having to edit documents written in docx format. However I would rather outlook was included than one note or power point as that would fit my usage better. I cannot pay another £100+ for outlook. would only justrecommend
