You can now install Office 365 desktop apps from the Microsoft Store


Office 365 is now available for purchase and installation from the Microsoft Store. It was first available only for Windows 10 S but has now expanded to support Windows 10.

If you want to install from the Microsoft Store, you first need to uninstall your current installation.

Once Office 365 is installed from the Microsoft Store it will automatically be updated like the rest of the store apps.

From the looks of it you can install the following:

  • Office 365 Personal
  • Office 365 Home

I currently install Office 365 Home from https://Office.com but I’m going to try this option out.



New updates for Office 2016 apps


This past week updates for Office 2016 started to roll out. Let’s take a look at some of the new features.

What’s New

New ink effects – Easily express your ideas with flair using metallic pens and ink effects like rainbow, galaxy, lava, ocean, gold, silver and more.

New Dubai font.

Insert 3D models.

While you were away – shows you who edited your shared document since your last visit.

Saves for you – Changes are automatically saved when your document is stored in the cloud (much like the mobile versions of Office apps). You can also see others’ updates in seconds.

Once you start saving your document to OneDrive, you will see your AutoSave feature  enabled.


While AutoSave is enabled your work will automatically be saved, similar to the Office mobile apps.


If you’re not already saving your work to the Cloud (OneDrive or another) then you should seriously consider doing this. It provides a better experience and also peace of mind that your content is backed up to the cloud and accessible from just about any device.
