To install office 365 follow the steps below. Note that if you have installed another version of office (such as the 64 but version) you will need to do that first.

When finished RESTART YOUR PC before you go any further.

To install office 365:

Logon to the PC with an account that has administrative privileges, go to your office 365 portal (link as of April 2019 ) and select the 32bit (my recommendation) version of MS office. Regardless of what version of Windows (32 or 64 bit) the 32 bit version is will work and has been Microsofts recommendation forever (up until now, 2019). I suggest staying with the 32 bit version for compatibility.

InstallOffice 03
