    Office 2019 v.s. Windows 10 Free Office


    I'm still not sure if I understand enough to even ask questions, but here goes. First some quick background.

    1. Using Windows 10 - installed about a week ago. Used windows 7 for years.

    2. When installing windows 10 I used the offline v.s. the Microsoft t sign in option. A friend said offline was the way to go so I did.

    3. Bought a copy of Office 2019 Professional

    4. After I got Windows up and running I installed Office 2019. When installing office I had to login to my Microsoft account.

    5. After Installing Office 2019, I read that windows 10 comes with a limited free version of office.

    QUESTIONS:

    1. How do I know if I'm using the office 2019 I installed v.s. the Free Version of Office that comes with windows?

    2. Windows is always asking me to upgrade to premium. What? Why? Isn't office 2019 the latest version? Since windows is always asking me to upgrade I wonder if I'm using the FREE version off office even though I installed office 2019?

    3. To use office 2019, do I have to be logged into my Microsoft account?

    4. I believe One Note comes with office 2019 professional, but not sure. I have one note on my computer but not sure if it came with Windows or it was installed when I installed Office.

    Everyone seems to love windows 10 but to me it seems to be about dollars. I guess Microsoft is going to go the Adobe Route and make things confusing as hell or at least that is how I feel.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    Office 2016 is supported on all current O/S's until 2025. So, 7 years is plenty of time to phase out all of their previous O/S's. I doubt there would ever be much need to run Office 2019 on a non-Windows 10 computer.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    I agree with this. No one is stopping me from using my purchased 2007 Office. Works just great for my needs 11 years later.

    I can understand why MS would want to shed many versions of window support for office that doesn't play well with Win 10 coding. I'm all for moving forward to create a better user experience. Might finally upgrade and keep Office 2019 for 10 years until 2029 to make it worth it again. *Big Grin Office 2019 v.s. Windows 10 Free Office :D
