Is it possible to download Access for Mac?

It is not possible to download Access for Mac since the Microsoft Office suite only offers this software in its Windows version and certain subscription plans. Access is, along with Publisher, the only two software that are only offered on computers with Microsoft operating systems and not on Apple computers. However, there are several options for using Access on a Mac, you just have to look for a viable alternative.

First, use BootCamp. This is a tool that is natively installed on your Mac and lets the user switch between macOS and Windows. To use it, just type BootCamp in Spotlight, the magnifying glass at the top right of your desktop, and an installation wizard will be launched. You will need to determine the size of the Windows partition, and then, select the ISO file of this operating system. This will start the process and once it is finished, you will be able to install the software as usual. Indeed, even though you are using a Mac, you will have a Windows partition.

Another possibility is to use virtual machines, which can emulate Windows on Mac computers. You can find applications such as Parallels Desktop or VMWare.

You can also download WineBottler or PlayOnMac right here. By typing that name in Google, you will also have access to the website of the developer.

These are the options available so you can use Microsoft Access on your Mac computer. In short, it is all about making the computer "think" that you are using Windows.

Although it is pretty obvious, even if you use a Mac, you may still have a computer running Windows at home. Use it simply to be able to use Access, but remember that this option will only be valid if you have the Microsoft Office Family or Microsoft Office Personal subscription, which are multi-device. In Office Home and Student 2019, local based and for one computer, you will not be able to do it, as it is not a basic program.
