After installing this program on my laptop, must I "be online" in order to routinely open and use it? (I go to places where there's NONE). Jul 15, 2013
No, you don't have to be online to use Microsoft office programs unless you are uploading or downloading documents stored on the "Cloud."
why won't it download Mar 8, 2014
Try this. On Microsoft download page there is an option(s) to load from a disc or to burn a disc of the program. Click on "burn a disc". There is an option to get the product code, choose it and write it down. Then before you actually burn the disc you have an option to save, run or run and save. Choose "run and save". This will run the program and save in your computer as it burns a disc. (Prior to this when I looked in the Download folder it had the name of the program but with "O" file size." Now, the file size showed up in my download list.) I still had to get a computer guy to get it out of the bowels of my computer for me because that was beyond my patience and skill sets which he did, at no cost I might add. You may be knowledgeable enough to get it to show up and use on your own without a computer guy's help. Oh, and if it doesn't show up in your download folder, supposedly you can use the disc you just burned along with the product code to get it loaded. Good luck.
what's the difference between this software and "Office 365 Home", which is a subscription; and why is "Office 365 Home" a subscription? Jul 29, 2014
you're lucky i learned the answer to that question, office home you buy and you own it, office home a subscription you more or less rent it and the price you pay will have to be paid again in one year to keep the program working. if you trade out computers and programs every year the subscription will save you a few bucks but if you use your computer until it won't work any longer you would be much better off buying the program and not the subscription.
I'm really tempted to purchase Office again because I can't get the Avery templates I need to work with Open Office. Suggestions? May 30, 2013
If you already have a word processing application you can get the Avery Templates from their website. The applications on Office 2013 work okay but they just don't look as good as earlier versions. Also, I'm not sure what their new "Office" program entails, 'looks like it's a "cloud" feature that I wasn't interested in. You might want to check with your nearest library and ask if they're using 2013 and if so, go look at it before you buy. Good luck.
can I install this program in my laptop and desktop without having to buy 2 of the same programs? Jul 25, 2013
My understanding is that each computer requires it own individual copy of a program.
Will I always have the option to re-install this software on this computer or another computer? If so, how? Feb 5, 2015
I had asked this same question and the response I received was that you could re-install on the same computer. From what I was told, you could also install on another say if you replaced your computer, but it would only be valid on one device. I would check with Microsoft directly with the specific product that you are interested in.
