What are my options?
We recommend you upgrade Office. Your options to upgrade will depend if you're using Office 2013 at home or if your version of Office 2013 is managed by the IT department or the IT admin at your work or school.
If you're using Office 2013 at home (such as, Office Home & Student 2013 or Office Home & Business 2013), you'll still be able to use it, but we recommend you upgrade to a newer version of Office so you can stay up to date with all the latest features, patches, and security updates. To learn more about upgrading see How do I upgrade Office?
You can also buy or try the latest version of Office now.
For individuals at work:
If your version of Office 2013 is managed by your work or school, contact your IT Help Desk about how to upgrade. Your IT department will likely have their own upgrade plan.
For IT Pros and Microsoft 365 admins:
If you're an admin still running Office 2013 in your organization, we strongly recommend that you upgrade your users to the latest version of Office as soon as possible. Review the following for additional guidance.
