1 gigahertz (Ghz) or faster x86- or x64-bit processor with SSE2 instruction set

Required Operating System

Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012

Required Memory

1GB RAM (32 bit); 2GB RAM (64 bit)

3.0GB available

Required Display

Graphics hardware acceleration requires a DirectX 10 graphics card and 1024 x 576 resolution

Required .NET Version

3.5, 4.0, or 4.5

Multi-touch

A touch-enabled device is required to use any multi-touch functionality. However, all features and functionality are always available by using a keyboard, mouse, or other standard or accessible input device. Note that new touch features are optimized for use with Windows 8.

Additional System Requirements

Some functionality may vary, based on the system configuration. Some features may require additional or advanced hardware or server connectivity.

Note:   System requirements are rounded up to the nearest 0.5GB, to be conservative. For example, if we measure an application’s required hard disk space to be 1.99GB, we recommend 2.5GB of disk space. Our hard disk system requirements are intentionally larger than the actual disk space usage of the software.

A graphics processor helps increase the performance of certain features, such as drawing tables in Excel 2013 or transitions, animations, and video integration in PowerPoint 2013. Use of a graphics processor with Office 2013 requires a Microsoft DirectX 10-compliant graphics processor that has 64MB of video memory. These processors were widely available in 2007. Most computers that are available today include a graphics processor that meets or exceeds this standard. However, if you or your users do not have a graphics processor, you can still run Office 2013.

FAQ

What's the difference between Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In this release all the Office 2013 suites, such as Office Home & Student 2013, include the latest versions of the Office applications, for use on a single PC. The name ”Office 365” is used for products that include features enabled over the internet, such as additional online storage with OneDrive or Skype world minutes for home use. Office 365 business plans include features such as Lync web conferencing and hosted email for businesses. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home, Office 365 University, and Office 365 Small Business Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis. Subscription terms vary by product. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. Active subscribers receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

How do I know if my computer or device can run the new Office?

You’ll need Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS to successfully run Office Home & Student 2013 on your PC. Mac users should visit Office 365 Home, Office 365 University, or Office for Mac to find products that will work for them.

What is OneDrive?

OneDrive is a service that enables you to upload files to storage in the cloud and then access them from a computer or phone. You can use OneDrive to store documents, notes, photos, music, videos or other types of file. OneDrive simplifies sharing. You can send photos and files through email, send a short link to them in a text message, or post them to a social network, your website, or your blog—all right from OneDrive. There's also a desktop app for OneDrive you can install that creates a folder on your PC or Mac that automatically syncs with your cloud folder, so you can access your files offline.

How much OneDrive storage do I get with Office?

All OneDrive users receive 7 GB of storage with OneDrive for free. Additional storage can be purchased if needed. Customers with an active Office 365 Home or Office 365 University subscription receive an additional 20 GB of OneDrive storage, per subscription, for a total of 27 GB of storage. This additional 20 GB of OneDrive storage is applied to the OneDrive account that is linked to the Microsoft account used to create the Office 365 subscription account.

Are my documents stored on OneDrive also available offline?

With the OneDrive desktop app installed on your computer, your documents are available offline without any action required from you. The OneDrive desktop app creates a folder on your computer that automatically syncs documents between your OneDrive storage in the cloud and your computer, so you can work on your documents offline and be assured that they are always in sync.

Can people with another Office version open documents I create with Office Home & Student 2013?

Yes, a person with a previous version of Microsoft Office can easily open documents created with the latest release of Office. Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 365, or Office 2013 users can open documents created using the latest release of Office applications without any additional action. Customers using earlier versions of Office may need to download and install a compatibility pack.
