Office hasn't really changed in the last X years but remians a very complete office package. The Office 365 subscription allows Office to be installed on up to five machines. More impressivley it can be shared with 4 other people so long as it is only installed on a maximum of five machines total (so my wife and father have it) AND each person gets 1TB (terra!) of One Drive cloud storage. I use this to back up by NAS. For comparison Google charge £7.99 PER MONTH for 1TB of cloud storage.
Works like a dream! Just renewed our Office 365 Home subscription by purchasing the download code from here (amazon.co.uk) which is cheaper than buying from Microsoft direct at £79.99 for 1 year or £7.99 per month. Got the product as soon as I'd paid then went over to office.com (account portal0 logged in with existing MS account. Copied and pasted the key code straight in. It renewed the subscription and now says your subscription has been extended to 10/July/2018. So even though I did it one day early MS honoured the time I still had left on the subscription. Expiry date was 10/07/2017. Reason for 4 stars? Office 2016 spoilt the functionality of OneNote 2013. Office 2016 isn't as intuitive to use as Office 2003.
Nice package of utilities. Its a shame that publisher insists on changing the font from Times New Roman in my older documents to Calibri - a total pain in the Harris and if anyone can suggest a way to stop this happening I 'll send you a virtual kiss! Otherwise, good value for money. Easy download and better priced through Amazon than direct from Microsoft.
Easily the best value licence and really simple to apply. From memory I believe that Amazon send you a code, which you use to register within Office itself. Painless procedure - and crucially on the whole more attractive than purchasing through Microsoft's own website.
An excellent purchase - apart from the Outlook 2016 IMAP folder problem. Basically it seems that you cannot delete an IMAP folder imported from a previous version of outlook! If you try it seems to disappear only to reappear a few seconds later.
