Windows 365 can change your computing life — if it’s set up correctly across all your devices. On the other hand, mistakes made during setup prevent you from optimizing all of the program’s features and will lead to ongoing frustration. Here is what your IT professional wishes you knew about Windows 365 setup.
When it comes to setting up your Windows 365 subscription, there are a few things you should keep in mind in order to get the most out of your investment.
Most people use Microsoft Office on a daily basis, whether for work or personal use. However, many people do not realize that there is more to Microsoft Office than just the basic Word, Excel, and PowerPoint applications. In fact, Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription service that provides users with access to a variety of different software programs and services. These include but are not limited to:
- Exchange Online
- SharePoint Online
- Skype for Business Online
- Office 365 ProPlus
While some of these services are available for free, others require a subscription in order to be used. In addition, different subscription levels provide access to different features and services. For example, Office 365 ProPlus is the subscription that provides access to the full Microsoft Office suite of applications, while other subscriptions may only provide access to certain individual applications, such as Word or Excel.
First, you will need to decide which subscription level is right for you. As mentioned above, different subscription levels provide access to different features and services. If you are not sure which subscription would be best for you, it is always a good idea to speak with your IT professional or someone who is familiar with the Windows 365 subscription levels.
Once you have decided on the right subscription level, the next step is Windows 365 setup. The process is relatively easy and can be done by following a few simple steps.
How to set up Windows 365 on your desktop
If you have a Windows 365 subscription, you can install the Microsoft Office apps on multiple PCs, Macs, and other devices. You can also sign into certain apps to get additional features. For example, if you sign into OneDrive with your Microsoft account, you get 15 GB of free storage. To start using Office on another device, sign in with your Microsoft account to that device. Then, on the Start screen or launch screen, find and tap or click the Office app you want to use.
If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, you will need to create one. You can do this by going to the Microsoft website and following the instructions. Once you have created your account, you will then need to sign into your account on the device you want to use Office on.
After you have signed in, you will be asked to provide some basic information such as your name, country, and preferred language. After that, you will be asked to choose the apps you want to install. For most people, the basic Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps will suffice. However, if you have a specific need for another app, such as OneNote or Outlook, you can choose to install that app as well.
After you have chosen the apps you want to install, the next step is to accept the terms and conditions. Then your apps will begin installing and you will be able to start using them right away.
How to set up Windows 365 on your mobile device or tablet
To get started using Office on your cellphone, you’ll need to find and download the Office app you want to use. You can either download the new Office app the contains Word, Excel or Powerpoint or, if you are only going to be using one app, you can download that app individually. Once you launch the app, on the first screen that appears, sign in with your Microsoft account. If you don’t have a Microsoft account, you can create one now. After you sign in, follow the instructions that appear on your screen to finish setting up Office.
The process for setting up Office on a tablet is similar to the process for setting up Office on a mobile device.
