What do I do if I get an Unidentified Developer Error when trying to install?
Why am I being prompted for a product key?
Remove or uninstall trial or demo versions, or versions you installed with a license key before you download and install Office from UB. Installing over a trial or demo or a version licensed with a key prompts you for a product key for the UB version.
When I go to open the download, why does it just keep opening a new file instead of installing the software?
Sometimes Chrome says the file has finished downloading, but it hasn't. When you go to install the software, the download is incomplete and won't install. Try downloading Office with a different browser, like Safari, and then installing it.
If I delete a previous version of Office, do my files get deleted?
May I download Office more than once?
Can I order a physical copy of Office media?
How can I log into OneNote online after I install Office 2016?
Go to https://account.microsoft.com/about and create a Microsoft account.
How can I use a component of Office that's only available for Windows?
If you have Parallels or VMware, you can download, install and run Office 2016 Professional Plus for Windows on your virtual Windows software. If not, try running Office through My Virtual Computing Lab.
How can I customize the Ribbon or add menu shortcuts?
I need Skype for Business (formerly Lync) but it doesn't come with Office for Mac?
Download Skype for Business for Mac separately.
How long can I use Office?
Your Office download will continue to work the entire time you are at UB. When you are no longer a current student, faculty or staff member, you must remove Office from your computer.
