Install Office 365 Apps

While the web-based versions of Office apps Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are both useful and convenient, they are not as full-featured as the desktop versions of the software. As a result, you may want to install Office 365 apps to your home computer to complete higher-end activities.

Fortunately, installing this software is a simple process.

Simply log into your Office 365 account, then click the INSTALL OFFICE button in the upper right.
