Office 365 (O365) is more than just a great place for your email and calendar. Every subscription has access to the online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more. Some subscriptions even let you download versions you can install onto your PC. But everything you need to write letters, build inventories, save files, organise teams, take notes and much more is already in your O365 account.
Let’s take a look at what you can do. You can access the online apps by clicking on the tiny squares icon at the top left corner. A dropdown will show your options. From here you can select an online app. You can also click on ‘All Apps’ to see everything available to you.
A quick note on downloading software
Maybe you are not ready for the full-browser experience. Some of us like having certain applications installed on our computers. Not to worry – O365 has that covered. Several of the O365 accounts also let you download the desktop version of some of the software. This includes popular applications such as Word and Excel. These can save files locally or online in your OneDrive account.
Please see the end of this article for details on how to get the application downloads.
