What is a Microsoft account, and why am I required to have one to use Microsoft 365?
Your Microsoft account is made up of an email address and a password that you use to log in to services like OneDrive, Xbox LIVE, and Outlook.com. You can log in with your existing Microsoft account or create a new one if you use any of these services. Find out more about having a Microsoft account.
You’ll be asked to sign in with a Microsoft account when you sign up for a trial or purchase Microsoft 365. You must be logged in with this account to install and manage your Microsoft 365 membership and use some subscription features, such as OneDrive storage.
What is the maximum number of users who can use a Microsoft 365 subscription?
A Microsoft 365 Family subscription can be shared with up to 5 additional individuals in your household for a total of 6 users. Additionally, one individual can use Microsoft 365 Personal.
What's the difference between a one-time purchase of Office 2021 and a Microsoft 365 subscription?
Office 2021 is available as a one-time purchase, which means you have to pay once for all of your Office apps on one machine. For both PCs and Macs, one-time purchases are available. However, there are no upgrade options, so you’ll have to pay full price for the next major update if you want to upgrade.
Microsoft 365 is a subscription that brings together the most collaborative and up-to-date features in a unified experience. Microsoft 365 includes your favorite Office desktop apps, such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. You’ll also get additional online storage and cloud-connected features that allow you to work on files in real-time. With a subscription, you’ll always have the most up-to-date features, fixes, and security upgrades, as well as free continuous tech support. You can pay month-to-month or yearly for your subscription. In addition, the Microsoft 365 Family plan allows you to share your subscription with up to 6 family members. This will enable you to use your apps on numerous PCs, Macs, tablets, and phones.
How do I share the benefits of my subscription with my family?
If you have one, you can share your Microsoft 365 Family subscription with up to 5 family members. In addition, you can install Microsoft 365 on all of your devices and log in to five devices at once if you share your membership with other members of your family.
Visit account.microsoft.com and follow the on-screen instructions to add a user to your subscription. Each person you add will get an email with instructions on proceeding. Their information, including the installs they’re using, will appear on their My Account page once they’ve approved and finished the steps. At account.microsoft.com, you can stop sharing your subscription with others or remove a device they’re using.
How can I know if Microsoft 365 is compatible with my PC or Mac?
Microsoft 365 can be used on a PC, Mac, Android, or iOS2 device. See the system requirements for information on which versions of your devices are compatible and additional feature requirements.
Will Microsoft 365 work the same on both a PC and a Mac?
No. Apps are designed specifically for each operating system. The apps available for Mac users and the exact functionality they provide may differ from those for PC users. You can be adaptable by using Microsoft 365. You are not restricted to using a Mac or a PC with your account so that you can switch between devices.
Do I retain ownership over my documents with a Microsoft 365 subscription?
Yes. You own all rights to the documents you’ve authored. You can save them to OneDrive online or locally on your PC or Mac.
Is Microsoft 365 dependent on Internet access?
All Microsoft 365 subscription options require internet access to install and activate the latest updates to apps and services. If you are already a subscriber, you do not need to reinstall or purchase another subscription. Internet access is also required for Microsoft 365 plans to manage your subscription account by installing apps on additional PCs or changing billing preferences. Unless you install the One Drive desktop client, you’ll need internet connectivity to access documents stored on One Drive.
It would be best to connect to the Internet frequently to keep your Microsoft 365 version up-to-date and take advantage of automatic upgrades. Your apps will fall into reduced functionality mode if you do not connect to the Internet at least once every 31 days. This means you will read and print your documents but not edit or create new ones. Then, reconnect to the Internet to reactivate your apps. Because Office products like Word, Excel and PowerPoint are fully installed on your computer, you don’t need to be linked to the Internet to use them.
