desktop editions of Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint and Word
are included in many Office 365 plans and can be installed
on each user's PC.
In this demo in the Office 365 from Scratch series Peter
Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business
Solutions, shows how to install the desktop Office suite.
These are the steps to install the Office 365 desktop applications
on your PC:
Go to the Office 365 Home page and click on the
‘Install Office 2016’ button. You can also click on
the "Other installs" link and then select to install
the 2016 or 2013 version of the Office suite.
At the bottom of your screen, click on ‘Run’.
A dialog will open. Click on ‘Yes’ to allow the
changes, and the installation will start.
When the installation is finished, open one of the
Office applications on your PC and sign in to activate
your desktop Office.
The activation gives you upgrades and a possibility to save
files to OneDrive and the default SharePoint site. You also
have to be connected to the internet for Microsoft's monthly
license check. If no license can be found, you will still
be able to read your existing files, but you cannot edit
them or create new files.
Via the "Other installs" link you can also install
Phone and tablet versions of Office365 apps
Skype for Business
The 2013 (and last) version of InfoPath and SharePoint
