Install the Office Desktop Editions

An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Office 365 logoThe 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:
  1. 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.

  2. At the bottom of your screen, click on ‘Run’.

  3. A dialog will open. Click on ‘Yes’ to allow the changes, and the installation will start.

  4. 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 Designer
