How to get the most out of your Windows 10 Mobile device with the Microsoft Office 365 Pro subscription
Posted On May 27, 2021
I recently wrote a post about how to set up Microsoft Office 2018 on my desktop with the new Microsoft Office Mobile app on my Windows 10 PC and Mac.
This is an important step, because I wanted to share what I learned using this app with you.
But before you do, you should make sure you’ve upgraded to the latest version of Office 365 on your PC.
If you don’t have that, you can still use this post to learn more.
The first step is to get Office 2017.
The Microsoft Office app is not supported in the Windows 10 Pro/Ultimate version of the Office 2018 app.
If your PC already has Office 2017, you’ll have to upgrade to the newest version of this app to use the new Office app.
Once you’ve updated to the new version, you must uninstall the previous version of Microsoft Office on your device before you can install the new app.
So, here’s what you’ll need to do to get Microsoft Office 2017 on your desktop.
First, go to Settings > Accounts > Account Settings > Office.
The new Office 2018 account you’ll create should be called Office365.
If the account is already associated with an existing Office 365 subscription, it will automatically be associated with the subscription.
You can choose to update your existing account, or upgrade to a new Office 365 account.
If it’s already associated, it’s okay to just delete it and move on to the next step.
Go to Settings.
Under General, select the Account Settings tab.
Under Account settings, select Microsoft Office.
On the left side, under Accounts, click Change settings to a different user account.
Select another user account, and select OK.
On to the right side, select General settings.
Select User accounts, and then click Update.
On your new user account settings screen, select Allow access from this account.
Enter a password that is not already on the clipboard.
After you’ve completed that step, click Next.
The user account you created will now be associated on your new account.
You’ll also see a new section under Accounts called Microsoft Accounts.
This new user accounts section is where you’ll make the changes you need to make to get your Office 2017 installed on your phone or tablet.
Under the new userAccounts section, click Install.
Click the Install button to start the installation of Office 2018.
If everything went well, you will see your new Office account under your device.
If things went wrong, click the Back button to return to the Home screen.
When you return to your device, you may have to wait for Office 2018 to finish installing on your mobile device.
Once Office 2018 is installed, you won’t be able to install Office on the phone or tablets anymore.
You may have some errors with the Office Mobile apps.
But if you have any problems with the apps, you might want to see this Microsoft article to learn how to fix them.
This article is not meant to be a replacement for professional help with your Office 365 license.
Microsoft will help you through the process.
If there are any problems or questions about Office 2018, you’re welcome to reach out to Microsoft Support.
If this is your first time using Microsoft Office for Mac, I hope you enjoy the app as much as I do.
