No other office software is as successful as the Microsoft Office range. For many, Microsoft Word is the central program in the series and for most is the word processing program par excellence.
But also the other programs from the Office software package such as Microsoft Excel, the email program Outlook, and PowerPoint are popular with many users in government offices.
Microsoft has recognized the trend that many users use more than one device, but want to access all of their programs at the same time. That is why the software giant from the USA developed office applications.
What Microsoft 365 versions are there for government offices?
The installation of Office 365 on a PC is easy, but a bit confusing due to the subscription model. First, you should decide on an Office 365 package. Microsoft has put together two different packages for the different needs of users. There is also Microsoft Home & Student 2019. The software package is available as a classic individual purchase.
The Microsoft 365 packages come as Microsoft 365 Personal and Microsoft 365 Family. Both packages contain Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, and Publisher. The single subscription is only suitable for one user and provides 1 TB of cloud volume.
Install Microsoft 365 in government offices – this is how it works
First, you have to log in with your Microsoft account, then you can start. Microsoft 365 is only offered as a download.
On www.office.com/signin, you can log in with the Microsoft 365 account with which you bought the product. If your government offices have never registered here, you have to create a new account. Next, you will be redirected to a page where you can enter your own product key that you received when you bought it.
If you have successfully logged in, you will find the “Install Office” field at the top of the page. Click on this button to download and install Microsoft 365.
Before doing this, you have to select on the website whether you want to install the program for a PC, Mac, or a mobile device.
If the installation menu does not open automatically, you can start with a double click on the installation file.
