Office apps in Windows 10

Applies to: Windows 10

Whether you need to find Office on your Windows 10 PC, install an old version on Windows 10, or get a new version of Office, we'll show you what to do.

Already have Office?

Search for Office apps by name in the search box on the taskbar to find them. For example, type word or excel.

Search for installed Office apps


  • To transfer Office from an old computer to a new one, uninstall it from the old computer first. Then install it on the new one and use the same product key when you're prompted for activation. For more about product keys, see this topic on Office 2013 and Office 2016, or this topic on Office 2010.

  • Office 2007 and earlier aren't compatible with Windows 10.

Don't have Office yet?

We recommend starting with a free trial of Office 365, a subscription that includes the Office apps, subscriber-only features, and online services like 1 TB of OneDrive storage.

If you'd rather not subscribe, you can still make a one-time purchase of Office. See Choose your Office to learn more.

Office on touch-enabled Windows 10 devices

On a Windows 10 PC with a touchscreen, you might prefer the Office Mobile apps: pared-down versions optimized for touch; no keyboard or mouse required.

Go to the Microsoft Store and search for office. You'll find familiar apps like Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and PowerPoint Mobile, as well as newer arrivals like Sway. (OneNote, OneDrive, Mail, and Calendar are already installed on Windows 10.)

See the Office Mobile Quick Start Guides to learn more.
