    4. Click on "OFFICE 365" on the top left to make sure it is highlighted in blue.

    6. Click on the drop-down menu and select the appropriate language.
    7. Click INSTALL. (If your computer doesn’t meet the system requirements for the latest version of Office or your language isn’t supported yet, you can install the previous version of Office 2010 )
    8. Once installation begins, the installation program will scan your computer for any previous versions of Microsoft Office.
    9. If you have Microsoft Office 2013 installed already, you will have to remove it from your system before continuing the installation.
      • If you have to remove Office, you must complete these steps:
      • Once prompted, select the Fix It Button at the top of the screen to uninstall the program (Office 2013/Office 2010).
        • Note: If you have an older installed version of Office (2000/XP) you may need to do a manual uninstall yourself first
      • Click Run.
      • Once complete you must reboot your computer and log in again and repeat steps 1-5.
    10. If you do not have to remove Office, your installation of Office 2013 ProPlus will begin.
    11. Once the application is loaded, a progress box will appear as the software downloads the final settings. Please note that the speed of your connection will determine the speed of this part of the installation.
    12. Once all loading is complete, follow the steps (wizard or online prompts) to personalize your Office 2013 ProPlus and begin using your software.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    » I'm a student at a charter school which is a school in Leon county so I qualify right?
    We are sorry, but the license agreement only allows students who attend a Leon County Schools operated school to have access to the O365 downloads.
    » Office 365 and Office 2013 are the same thing right?
    No! Keep in mind two things:
    O365 is a 100% cloud/browser based system and does not have to be installed (it is not downloaded). This is a new way of working with software where you are basically streaming the software over the web.
    Office 2010 or Office 2013 is downloaded to your local machine through O365 and allows up to 5 copies to be downloaded for use by users. This is the normal way users have used office in the past and is the full featured version.
    » I can install Office 2013 on my Ipad, Iphone, Android or tablet right?
    No. Tablets and phones are not designed to rull the full desktop version of the software. If you want to install the office suite on mobile devices, please visit the Mobile QR downloads section on the left and follow the links there to access and download the mobile apps for your device or log in here and run Office 365 from your browser.
    » Is there a support site for Office 365 ?
    Yes. We have provided many of the basic configuration documents and link you might need on our Office 365 Support site. You can reach it here: https://www.leonschools.net/Page/877.

    » I tried using my Hotmail, MSN, or Outlook acct, but its not working. What now?

    › There are two sides to the Microsoft world, Consumer(Public) and Enterprise(Private) and these two sides are completly seperate from each other. In order to use the LCS Office 365 or to download your free copy of the Office 2013 suite, use your school based O365 credentials and login to http://outlook.com/leonschools.net. The credentials you recieve from LCS are part of our Enterprise (Private) system and belongs to the school district and are yours to use as long as you are a student or employee of the district only

    › If you own a Windows 8 machine @ home, you probably created a personal MSN, Hotmail, or Outlook acct to enable the Microsoft store. Those credentials belong to you and is your "public" acct, and remains yours forever. However, attempting to use your personal (public) acct credentials within our private O365 system will not work and will not allow you to access Office365, or to download and use Office 2013..
    NOTE: If you access the MS Store and download the Office suite using your personal MS crednetials, your LCs credentials will not activate that software.
