Ratings and reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromFailed to reactivate after Windows 10 upgradeThe changes to Microsoft's process has made managing all my office licenses a complete nightmare. Since I used a disk to install because of our network restrictions I gave each of my stores a copy of the product key that was used to activate office because the website provided a different key when using the disk that Microsoft now calls and invalid Key so I spent a lot of money on 4 license that are now useless. I spent 3 hours on the phone with support and did not get anything fixed. you can not buy volume licensing unless you have 30+ computers so now they expect you to maintain 1 Microsoft account for every office license. This is not practical at all!

Rated 1 out of5 by fromIF USING EXCHANGE 2010 - BEWARE!We have an Exchange 2010 server, and with Home and Business 2013, we enter our info manually using our exchange server FQDN to connect - this option HAS BEEN REMOVED IN 2016. If you want to connect to exchange, you have to have a PRO version of windows (+another freaking $99). This coupled with the IMPOSSIBLE task of trying to coordinate who has what product key and when it was activated because the "product" page is just a long list of what you bought with product keys 3 clicks in on each product? Just don't buy. Look at volume licensing if at all possible.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromUsed to love it but not anymoreAside from having the obvious learning curve from going from 2007 to 2016 versions (which is not the reason for the 2 stars) one thing that I hate is that Microsoft Word stops working at the most inopportune times and when it does come back to life (after rebooting itself) it doesn't save most of my changes even after I save it manually every few minutes; a practice I adopted years ago. It has cost me hours of redoing work. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!

Rated 1 out of5 by fromcrashes are unacceptableback to the 90s? crashes are regular and beyond acceptable. it was just annoying after the first week. now that i've been struggling with this bloated office product for almost two weeks, its time to go back to Office 2010, which may not be current, but at least crashes are not an issue. my bad for expecting/hoping that Microsoft would have stopped releasing beta quality software.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromUpdate IssuesThe purchase and install was fine. Then it did an automatic update a few days later and Outlook quit working. It won't even open, just gets stuck on "processing". Then a couple days later, Windows updated, and now it says I am using an unlicensed product, and need to activate it. It won't let me activate it. I paid full retail price for this copy, and it has been painful.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromSolid ProgramNeeded these basic programs for home office work. They are solid, don't crash and are for the most part very user friendly. I highly recommend this package to everyone; just wish MS would price little lower so everyone would be able to purchase it.

Rated 4 out of5 by far so good except:Overall Office Home & Business 2016 is what I expected and blends seamlessly with Windows 10 Pro. The only issue found so far is in Outlook 2016: when high-lighting then right-clicking on an email, the drop down menu does not include an Open command......however, if you high-light (select) two emails then right-click the drop down menu contains an Open command and when selected will open both emails....."very very strange" considering that I can only read one email at a time!!!Really hope that this problem gets fixed !!!
