Download and install or reinstall Microsoft 365 or Office 2021 on a PC or Mac Download

Before you begin, make sure your PC or Mac meets the system requirements.

If you are reinstalling Office, you have already redeemed a product key, or you are installing Office at work or school and know you have a license, then go to the section sign in to download and install Office.

However, if this is the first time you’re installing Office, you may have some pre-installation steps to do first. Expand the Learn more section below for more info.

Sign in to download Office

  1. Go to www.office.com and if you’re not already signed in, select Sign in.

    Note: If you’re using Microsoft 365 operated by 21 Vianet, sign in with your work or school account to login.partner.microsoftonline.cn.

    If you’re using Microsoft 365 Germany, sign in with your work or school account to portal.office.de.

    2. Select Office 365 apps to begin the installation.

    The 64-bit version is installed by default unless Office detects you already have a 32-bit version of Office (or a stand-alone Office app such as Project or Visio) installed. In this case, the 32-bit version of Office will be installed instead.
