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.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromOutlook 2012Impossible to import contacts and folders correctly. Cannot print email diagnostics from ONSTAR. These have to be forwarded and this process takes a long time. Wish I would have stayed with windows live mail

Rated 1 out of5 by fromNever was able to downloadReturned it the next day. i had originally purchased Outlook spring of 2014 and the purchase did not show up on my account. After an update 2 weeks ago the original Outlook would not work. I tried uninstalling the update and that deleted the whole program. So I purchased Outlook again but was never able to download, continued to get messages that office was busy and to try again later.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromIt is OK, but thought it would include WORD .Being 82 and the computer was a gift, I thought all programs were standard features. Discovered I had to subscribe. Not using the many programs, I chose the outlook 2013. But, I now have to subscribe to Word . Always something more!!!.
