    • What’s new in this release of Office?

      The 2013 versions of familiar Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include new 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 brand new subscription versions of Office, specifically designed for the way you use Office today. Each new subscription offer will include the 2013 versions of the Office applications, for example Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus cloud services such as Skype world minutes and online storage with SkyDrive®.

      Subscribers will also receive version upgrades as well as use rights across multiple PCs or Macs and select mobile devices.2

      Note: The Office applications you can use across PCs, Macs and other devices vary by platform.

    • 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. All Office 2013 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC.

      We use the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet.

      Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

      Read the “Help me choose the suite that’s right for me”.

    Benefits of the new Office

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

      Office 365 customers with active subscriptions 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 the new Office on my Mac?

      If you buy an Office 365 subscription, you can install Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on your Mac. The applications available for Mac users and the version numbers may be different from those available for PC users. Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 is also available for purchase as a standalone product.
    • 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.
    • For which devices will Office be available?

      At launch, Office supports PCs running Windows® 7 or higher, and Macs with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or higher. Office Mobile supports Windows Phone devices running Windows Phone OS 7.5 and higher. Additional devices will be added in the future. Check www.office.com/information for details.
    • 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 Home Premium you can choose the language to install Office in by visiting www.office.com/myaccount. Not all languages will be available in all regions. Customer is limited to using Office in two languages at one time.

      For information about language options that are available with an Office product, visit www.office.com/language.

    • 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 by using compatibility and service packs found at www.office.com.
    • What is Office on Demand?3

      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 don’t 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 SkyDrive 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.

    • What is the difference between the Office Web Apps and Office on Demand?

      Office Web Apps are best suited for quick viewing and editing. Like Office Web Apps, 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.

    About SkyDrive

    • What is SkyDrive?

      SkyDrive is a service that enables you to upload files to cloud storage and then access them from a Web browser, PC or Mac, or devices–no manual syncing or cables needed. Use your SkyDrive storage and you’ll never be without the documents, notes, photos, and videos that matter to you. Just log on to a web browser, sign in to skydrive.com, and go to work viewing or editing.
    • Why does Office save documents to SkyDrive?

      Saving your documents to SkyDrive allows you to easily access and edit them on multiple devices from virtually anywhere. Office 365 Home Premium subscriptions include an additional 20 GB of storage space on SkyDrive. (Note: All SkyDrive users receive 7GB SkyDrive storage for free).
    • Are my documents stored on SkyDrive also available offline?

      Yes. For most PCs and Macs, when you save a document in Office, the default option saves it to a local SkyDrive folder on the computer, which automatically syncs to SkyDrive online. You can access your documents in the local SkyDrive folder on your computer at any time, even if you are not connected to the Internet.

    About Skype world minutes

    • What are Skype world minutes?

      Skype world minutes let you easily call people internationally. And now Office 365 Home Premium comes with 60 minutes per month of Skype calls to phones in over 40 countries. It’s easy. Just dial from Skype and your friends and family can pick up on their phone.

      Skype world minutes are included with Office 365 Home Premium at no additional cost.

    • Can I use Skype world minutes plan from my mobile phone?

      You can use Skype world minutes from any device where you have Skype installed, whether it’s your mobile phone, Windows 8 tablet, TV, or other device.
    • Which countries are included with Skype world minutes?

      Skype world minutes are not available in all countries and calls may be made only to select countries. To learn more about Skype World Minutes, go to office.com/information Note that special, premium, and non-geographic numbers are not covered by Skype World Minutes. Additionally, it isn’t possible to place emergency calls.

    Download and install Office

    • Is Internet access required for Office?

      Internet access is required to install and activate all the latest releases of Office suites and all Office 365 plans. After purchase, you must visit www.office.com/setup to enter a product key and create an account (using a Microsoft account).

      For subscription versions of Office including Office 365 Home Premium you will need to go online to manage your subscription account, for example to install Office on other machines, or to change billing options. You will also need to connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up-to-date and benefit from automatic upgrades. Internet connectivity is also required to access the Office 365 cloud services such as SkyDrive and Skype world minutes.

    • What is my Microsoft account and why do I need it for my Office software?

      A “Microsoft account” is the new name for what used to be called a “Windows Live ID.” Your Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and a password that you use to sign in to services like Hotmail, Messenger, SkyDrive, 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 one at any time.

      With this release of Office, you can associate your Microsoft account with your Office subscription.

      You need to sign in to your account or create a Microsoft account when you start an Office 365 Home Premium subscription or when you install the latest Office suites. The Microsoft account you use to sign up for your Office 365 subscription or install your Office suite will be the one you sign in with every time you want to manage your account; for example, when you install Office on a new computer in your household, or change your subscription billing details. 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, all you have to do is return to www.office.com/myaccount and sign in with your Microsoft account.

    • How do I install Office 365 Home Premium?

      If you purchase Office 365 Home Premium as a boxed product from a retailer, visit www.office.com/myaccount on the PC or Mac that you want to install Office on, and then enter the product key included in the package. Next, sign in with or create a Microsoft account. Once signed in, click Install Office and follow the onscreen instructions.

    • How do I install Office Home & Student 2013, Office Home & Business 2013, or Office Professional 2013?

      Go to www.office.com/setup and follow the onscreen instructions to download the software to your computer. You can install Office on one PC.
    • 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 Premium: Go to www.office.com/myaccount, click Languages and install options, and then click Additional install options.
      • Other Office 365 plans: Log into your account at www.office365.com 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.

    Managing My Office 365 account

    • How do I manage my Office 365 subscription?

      You can manage your billing information, install or remove Office from additional PCs or Macs, Windows 8 tablets, or select devices and remove Office from PCs, Macs, Windows 8 tablets, and select devices at any time. The steps for doing so depend on which plan you’ve installed:

      • Office 365 Home Premium: Go to www.office.com/myaccount and follow the on-screen instructions.
      • Other Office 365 plans: Log into your Office 365 account at www.office365.com to edit your profile as a user or manage your organization as an administrator.

    • What if I want to change which devices have Office 365 installed?

      Office 365 Home Premium can be installed on up to five PCs, Windows 8 tablets, or Macs and select devices. If you have already installed Office on five PCs or Macs and want to use Office on another PC or Mac, you can deactivate a computer from your subscription on the My Account page, and then install Office on a new PC or Mac. The copy of Office on the PC or Mac 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 PC.
    • How do I obtain a back-up copy of my Office product?

      There are several ways to get a back-up for your Office product:

      • Office 365 Home Premium customers can download or reinstall from office.com/myaccount.
      • You may order a DVD back-up copy for Office Home & Student 2013, Office Home & Business 2013, or Office Professional 2013 for a fee. Visit www.office.com/downloadoffice for details. (Back-up copies are available in limited markets)

    • 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 Web Apps on SkyDrive for basic editing.

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

      Your documents will remain accessible to share and download. You will have the option to access and edit your documents saved on SkyDrive using Office Web Apps. You may save your SkyDrive documents to another computer or disk drive at any time. If you have reached your free 7 GB storage limit, you won’t be able to add any further documents to SkyDrive.
    • Are my documents stored on SkyDrive also available offline?

      Yes. For most PCs and Macs, when you save a document in Office, the default option saves it to a local SkyDrive folder on the computer, which automatically syncs to SkyDrive online. You can access your documents in the local SkyDrive folder on your computer at any time, even if you are not connected to the Internet.
