    Click the Install link presented or go to the Microsoft Services & subscriptions page and sign in using your Microsoft account if you’re not signed in already. This is where you can manage all of the products linked to your Microsoft account, if you need to re-install a program in the future you can do so again from this page.

  6. Customize The Install

    Select the options you want with the “Other options” link (such as 64-bit and language changes), and then click Install. This will download the setup file to your computer.

  7. Installation
    If your computer came with Office 365 pre-installed, or if you have Office 365 installed from a previous subscription, please un-install it from your system first otherwise it overrides the following installation and says you subscription has expired (this is a bug Microsoft has never fixed).

    Run the setup file downloaded to your computer to install the Office applications.

  8. Installation Complete

    Your install is finished when you see the phrase, “You’re all set! Office is installed now” and an animation plays to show you where to find Office applications on your computer. Select Close.
    Follow the instructions in the window to find your Office apps. For example depending on your version of Windows, select Start and then scroll to find the app you want to open such as Excel or Word, or type the name of the app in the search box.

  9. Activation

    Start using an Office application right away by opening any app such as Word or Excel and it may prompt you to activate the installation depending on your product.

  10. Office Activation Wizard

    Office might activate automatically. However, depending on your product you might see the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard. If so, follow the prompts to activate Office. If the recommended activation option does not work, try again with the telephone option.
