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.

Microsoft account required.

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.


What is 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. 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 devices can run the new Office?

You’ll need Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS to successfully run Office Home & Business 2013 on your PC. Mac users should visit Office 365 Home, Office 365 University, or Office for Mac to find products suitable for their OS.

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?

Customers with an active Office 365 Home subscription receive an additional 1 TB of OneDrive storage. They can share their subscription benefits with up to four members of their household, and each member who is added to the existing subscription also receives an additional 1 TB OneDrive storage. This additional storage is not available during trial periods. This additional 1 TB of OneDrive storage is applied to the OneDrive accounts that are linked to the Microsoft account used to create the Office 365 subscription account and any other account (up to four) that the subscription purchaser decides to share their subscription benefits with.

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 Professional 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.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromToo many bugsThere are so many bugs In Word and Excel I can't stand it. I have been an Office fan for years, but I really find that this version has too many flaws.Word won't redline my documents past the first third of the document.Word's print only selection doesn't print at all.Excel won't allow me to open a spreadsheet from explorer-the screen is blank (you can only see the spreadsheet in print preview). You have to first open Excel, then choose a blank spreadsheet, then choose open file, then choose the file you want in order for the spreadsheet to show.Word won't hold a selection of text long enough to copy it.Convert table to text doesn't work except with a paragraph mark after each row- the other options don't work.And on, and on, and on. . . .

Rated 2 out of5 by fromNew Year, New Coat of Paint = New Office (Better?)I have Office 2010 at work and have it for my home system. When I found out I would be migrated to Office 2013 I decided I needed to take the plunge on my home system rather than be forced to learn a new system in a time crunch. Thankfully, I always to a full image of my drive prior to starting any such endeavor. Office 2013 is a Complete pain to install. It says it's "installing in the background" and go ahead and work (haha, no) doing so may (in my case almost always causing the install to hang or crash) Windows restore fixed than and I started again. Not touching the keyboard or mouse. Finally, Success. Then Vizio, Ahem (2 hours later it finished) Project (I started before I went to bed (set a restore point in windows) crashed, restored again and started the install again and went to work. Came home and it had finally succeeded. Really, overall, not impressed. The interface is dull monochromatic icons in the start menu all seem to look alike at a distance or on a older monitor. But when you open a program their is a cute animation. Another user commented how Microsoft is moving to a more "Mouse Centric" environment and that is apparent. Making long time computer users and typists long for days prior to the mouse, since all it seems to do is slow me down. For the general user, not seeing any real value in this offering with one exception Lync was included with the install so I can login via VPN and communicate with a native IM client with the in office staff. (unless you just have to get the latest "thing" or it's a necessity for compatibility purposes) I went back to 2010 (except for Lync) and will only upgrade when told that docs need to be put out only in the 2013 or later format. Or when someone can show me a true selling point, cause all I see is frosting, but no cake.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromProject Pro 2013 won't installWin 8.1, patched, AV patched/running. When I attempt to install Project (or Visio 2013) click-to-run hangs in background (after I tell Windows yes, I really want to install this and yes, you can, thank you). Never takes processor/disk/CPU time, just stays dormant in the background. This totally frustrates me and will certainly open my eyes to looking at other application suites.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGood Programs But Still Adjustments NeededI know it sounds better but it needs an improvement: add SkyDrive. I want to sync with Office, but using the Save to SkyDrive is a little overused and i wanted much better than this. Publisher is still not letting me type anywhere than to Word but it's a little bit of an of the improvement.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWhat was really updated?Outlook: Hard to read. Keep getting double of emails. Keeps jumping to oldest email. Doesn't respond well, so you end up deleting or moving the wrong message.Word: What needed to change here? Version by version Office gets less keyboard friendly and more mouse use heavy. If it were my choice at work, we would use Corel WordPerfect. For the intricate type of documents we do it perfect that WordPerfect allows you to word process and calculate in one document. Multiple headers and footers are a joke in Word. Overall the New Office is again less user friendly than the last version. Just because you put some new lipstick on it and call it new to make money off of upgrades doesn't mean it's a new or improved product. This product is anti-efficient.
