Anybody can use Office Word, Excel, and Powerpoint without spending a single penny, here’s how:
We have been forced to stay at home because of the havoc caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, so in order to work, we may need some tools on our personal computers like office setup 365 or the latest office setup suite 2019 or Microsoft 365. This productivity suite was debuted in April and it adds more features to office setup. But if you don’t want to spend any cash on it, there are several ways to get these services and apps for free.
Microsoft’s Office Setup which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, OneDrive typically costs around $150 for a one-time installation or we can say $70 – $100 every year for subscriptions around devices or family members. Microsoft recently announced a new version of Microsoft Office setup for Windows and Mac to be released with no subscription around 2021.
To get the free version of Office for your PC all you have to do is provide them with your school’s email address (this is the best option for students and teachers). If you are a teacher or a student you are eligible for free Office Setup 365 which will include Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
Once you have entered all the credentials on the official website and afterward you will be directed to an automated verification process, if you attend the institution it will take a month to confirm your eligibility.
The people who are not associated with educational institutes can get 1 month free trial of Office Setup to try it out, you don’t even have to enter your Credit Card details and if you cancel it before the trial expires you can use it for free.
Another option available is that there is no need to purchase the full suite you can download the apps for free Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Onedrive, Calendar, and Skype. You can access them online by entering Windows Account credentials and save the work on OneDrive.
There must be several questions arising about why purchasing the office setup when you can use it online, answer to that is the functionality of those apps are limited, you can use them only if you are online, connected to the internet on the web browser, so if you are a person who wants to use it for free and constantly share work online, then this is the good option
