by Gajendra Verma Office setup

Before you begin, make sure your PC or Mac meets the system requirements. (The steps below are for Office 365 and Office 2016. For install help with older versions, see 201320102011, or 2007.)

Office for home Some Office for home products come with a product key. If yours did, before installing Office for the first time, sign in with an existing or new Microsoft Account and enter your product key at office.com/setup. Redeeming your key is what links your account with Office so you only have to do this once. Already did this? Go to Step 1.

Office for business If your Office for business subscription plan includes the desktop version of the Office apps you won’t see an option to install it unless someone in your organization assigned a license to you. Learn how to check this in What Office 365 product or license do I have? Office 365 admins responsible for this, see Assign licenses to users.
