Signing out of Office lets you disconnect from services like OneDrive, removes your settings, and clears the list of frequently used documents. You can sign out of Office from within any Office app. You can also use a web browser to sign out of Office remotely.

Note: If you're using Microsoft 365, you should stay signed in so that Office stays activated. If you sign out, Office will prompt you to sign back in. To learn more, see What happens when you sign out of Office.
