About the Author

Kevin Wilson has made a career out of technology and showing others how to use it. After earning a master’s degree in computer science, software engineering, and multimedia systems, Kevin worked as a tutor and college instructor, helping students master such subjects as multimedia, computer literacy and information technology. He currently serves as Elluminet Press Publishing’s senior writer and director, he periodically teaches computing at college in South Africa and serves as an IT trainer in England.

Kevin’s motto is clear: If you can’t explain something simply, you haven’t understood it well enough. To that end, he has created the Computer Essentials series, in which he breaks down complex technological subjects into smaller, easy-to-follow steps that students and ordinary computer users can put into practice.

Have fun.

Getting Started with Office

Office 365, is a subscription-based version of Microsoft Office Applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, and OneNote. This means you pay a monthly or annual subscription that allows you to download and use the Office applications.

Unlike any of the traditional Office suites such as Office 2016 or 2019, Office 365 allows you to install Office applications on up to five different computers. It includes some additional features, such as Office on Demand, 15GB - 1TB of additional online storage space through OneDrive, and the option to install Office on Mac computers and tablets.

Office 365 subscription guarantees that you’ll be able to upgrade to the latest version of Office whenever it’s available at no additional cost.

Office Packages

There are a number of different options and packages available depending on what your needs are.

Office 365 Home - can be installed on 5 PCs or Macs plus up to 5 mobile devices. This package is aimed at home users with more than one computer. The package includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access and Publisher. Also comes with 1TB of OneDrive space for each user.

Office 365 Personal - Has pretty much the same as Office 365 Home, except you can only install it on 1 PC or Mac and 1 Mobile device.

Office Home & Student - can be installed on one PC only and includes, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. This is a one off payment rather than a subscription.

Here is a comparison summary according to Microsoft’s website.

To help you decide, take some time to think about the features that are most important to you and how they fit into your budget.

Below are some questions you may want to ask yourself:

If you just need Word, Excel, and PowerPoint - the core Office applications, it may be best to buy Office Home & Student, since it’s the cheapest option over the long term. This one is a one off payment, so it is unlikely you would get any of the updates in the future, but can only be installed on one machine.

If you need the more advanced applications such as Access, Publisher, Outlook Email, or OneDrive storage, then Office 365 Personal is a good option, but can only be installed on one machine. Also comes with 1TB of space on OneDrive.

If you need to install Office on more than one computer. If your household has several computers, Office 365 Home subscription is a good option. You can install the Office Suite on up to 5 PCs or Macs and 5 mobile devices such as iPads, kindles, iPhones etc. Also comes with 1TB of space on OneDrive.

Will I do a lot of editing on the go? If you use public computers at libraries or business centres, or on your iPad, while travelling on the train for example, Office 365 Home may be your best option, since it includes the Office Apps for mobile devices, Office on Demand and Web based versions of the Office applications. Note that these online versions are cut down versions of the full app, meaning they only contain the basic editing tools for each application.

Business users have different services available to them.

Students & teachers can get discounts and free versions for either themselves with Microsoft Education.


What is the Cloud?

Cloud computing is about running applications over the Internet and being able to access your files from wherever you may be; at your desk, on a train, in a coffee shop, airport and so on, using a variety of different devices. These could be laptops, desktops, macs, mobile phones or tablets.

Microsoft Office 365 is an example of a cloud service and utilises cloud computing for storage, allowing you can run applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote over the internet.

Some other major examples are Google Drive and Apple iCloud.

When you run programs from the hard drive on your computer, it’s called local storage. Everything is stored on your computer.

With cloud computing, you access your data and run your applications over the Internet.

These applications, services and data are stored on large server farms and are managed by the cloud service.

Your OneDrive files are stored on a server in this server farm rather than locally on your computer.

In the photograph above, there can be about 20 or more servers stacked up in each cabinet and hundreds of cabinets filling entire rooms serving millions of people who subscribe to the service.

The advantage is, you can log in and access your files anywhere on the internet and your files are backed up by the cloud service, so should your computer fail, your files will still be on your OneDrive.

Purchasing Office Online

First open your web browser and go to Microsoft Office website


In this example we are purchasing the home version. If you want to download a different version change it by clicking ‘products’ on the red bar at the top and select the version from the drop down box. The procedure is the same.

From the home page select ‘For Home’.

You can either pay a monthly subscription or pay an annual cost. Choose depending on your budget. If you want to pay monthly, click ‘or buy for £$ a month’. In this example I’m going to pay the annual fee, so click ‘buy now’ in the Office 365 Home column.

Paying monthly will spread the cost over the year rather than paying one lump sum.

Check the amount then click ‘next’.

Once you have done that you will be prompted to sign in with your Microsoft account.

If you are using Windows 8 or 10 you will probably already have a Microsoft account that you created when you set up your machine. This is usually the username/email and password you used to sign into Windows.

If so enter these details into the screen below.

If this is not the case then you can quickly create one. See ‘create a microsoft account’ later in this chapter.

You will be prompted to enter your payment details. If you have purchased from the Microsoft store before, then you can choose to pay with an existing card or you can add a different card number.

Enter your information in all the fields, then click ‘next’ at the bottom of the screen.

Click ‘buy now’ to confirm your order.

Downloading Office Suite

You can download Microsoft Office from the Microsoft’s website. Open your web browser on the machine you want to install Office and navigate to...


Click ‘Sign in’ on the top right of your screen and enter your Microsoft Account email address and password.

Click ‘install office’ on the top right of the screen.

Scroll down to ‘install office on all your computers’. Click ‘install office’.

Click ‘other options’ and select the 64bit version.

Click ‘run’ when prompted by your browser.

The Office installer will run and begin downloading the necessary files to install Office on your computer.

This can take a while to complete depending on the speed of your computer and your internet connection.

The Installer will run once it has finished downloading. You may need to enter your computer’s password you used to log into Windows.

Once Office is installed, click ‘close’

You will be able to find your Office Apps installed on your start menu. You may have to scroll down the list of apps on the left hand side, if you don’t see the tiles or shortcuts on your start menu.

If this is your own computer then you can skip the next step.

If this is not your computer and belongs to someone else in the family, open up an office application such as Microsoft Word.

From the screen that appears, select ‘account’ from the bottom left..

In the main window, Click on ‘sign out’. This will sign out of your account.

Now you can allow another person to sign in using their own Microsoft Account, rather than using yours.

Now the other person can sign in with their Microsoft Account.

Create a Microsoft Account

To set up a Microsoft Account you need to open a new web browser. To do this, click your web browser icon on the start menu. Go to the following
