Therefore, by installing it, you will also get other tools on your computer, such as Excel or PowerPoint. To start, you must download its executable.

Once the download is complete, the installation will be performed immediately. Actually, you should do nothing more than wait for the installer to notify you that the process has finished. From that moment on, you will have Microsoft Word on your computer. You can check this by opening the start menu and locating its icon in the list of applications.

As we have already mentioned, this method installs other tools, included in Microsoft Office. Among them, you will find:

  • Excel
  • Publisher
  • Outlook
  • PowerPoint

Besides, if you want to take full advantage of the Microsoft Office Suite, we recommend that you have an OneDrive account. Thanks to it, you will be able to activate some interesting functions, such as autosave. It is also the easiest way to store your documents securely, to have them available on any device, and to share them with other users quickly. Microsoft offers 5 GB of free storage that can be expanded, if necessary, by paying a subscription fee.
