When you purchase a Microsoft365 Business Standard from Cloud86, you have access to an office installation. In this guide, we explain how to install Office on your local computer or laptop.

Microsoft 365: Business Standard Install Office locally

With many new Windows computers, office is already installed by default and you can use Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint by logging in with your username and password. If you don't have office installed yet or if you want to use the latest version, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Microsoft at with the credentials of the user to whom the license has been assigned. Is it the first time logging in? Then you will be prompted to set up 2FA. For this, see also Microsoft 365: First Time Login.
  2. After logging in, click the Install and More button in the upper right corner and then click Install Microsoft 365 apps.
  3. Then click on Install Office.
  4. A file is automatically downloaded. You open this file after downloading, so you can then use it to install Office.
  5. After installing we open an office application such as Word and after opening it we can activate it by logging in with the same user as in step 1.
  6. Click Sign In and enter your Microsoft 365 credentials.
