Installing Office 365 on additional devices

Step 1: Sign-in to download Office

  1. Go to, select Sign in.

This begins the download of Office. Follow the prompts on your screen to complete the install.

Step 2: Install Office

  1. Depending on your browser, click Run (in Edge or Internet Explorer), Setup (in Chrome), or Save File (in Firefox). If you see the User Account Control prompt that says, Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? Click Yes. The install begins.
  1. 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. Follow the instructions in the window, for example, Click Start > All Apps to see where your apps are and select Close.

Step 3: Activate Office

  1. Start using an Office application right away by opening any app such as Word or Excel. In most cases, Office is activated once you start an application and after you click Accept to agree to the License terms.
  1. 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.
