What’s the difference between Office 2013 and Microsoft 365?

Office 2013 consists of applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, which can be purchased once and used on a single PC. On the other hand, Microsoft 365 offers premium versions of these applications along with additional services accessible via the Internet.

These services include online storage through OneDrive and Skype minutes for personal use. With Microsoft 365, users can enjoy the complete Office experience with installations available on PCs, Macs, tablets (including iPad® and Android™ tablets), and phones. Microsoft 365 plans are offered as monthly or annual subscriptions.

How to Use

Using Microsoft Office 2013 is easy, especially for users familiar with previous versions. After installation, you can launch individual applications from the Start menu or desktop shortcuts. Each application has a ribbon-based interface with tabs like Home, Insert, Page Layout, and Review, offering quick access to various features and tools.

Users can create new documents, open existing ones, customize formatting, collaborate with others, and save files in different formats.

Alternatives
