    Windows 10 and free Excel editing not working


    Hi I've bought an 8" tablet with Windows 10 because I read an article saying Excel mobile allows free editing if the tablet size is smaller than 10.1". However when I try to create a new document it says I have to buy an Office365 subscription. Am I doing something wrong?

    :)

    Microsoft Photo Editor from Office 97 on Windows 10

    Office 97 and its components are not supported on Windows 10.

    You understand that between 1997 and 2016 the Windows code has changed enormously? You cannot expect software from 19 years ago to work properly - or at all - on Windows 10.

    My personal favorite for image editing is an application called
    Paint.net
    . It's supported on Windows 10 and it's free. But there are many other excellent image editing products - free and paid. Your big problem is going to be deciding which one to choose.

    Windows 10 and free Excel editing not working

    Can you provide that article or a link to it? Editing is not the same as creating so there may be nothing wrong, just doesn't work as desired. Over a year ago my 8" tablet came with a 1-year subscription to Office 365 but I preferred the free LibreOffice rather than renewing a subscription-based program.

    Yeah - this is a longstanding issue. Although website says it applies to Windows, it does not work in many cases. Apparently vendor of tablet has to ensure Windows identifies tablet as a small form device (I always though this was BS personally).

    I have had same issue on 2 tablets and never resolved it - in simple terms it just does not work.

    There are free Viewers for Microsoft Office products but they don't allow editing.

    There is a free Office suite you can use and save work to OneDrive, if you have it enabled. Go here and try a test doc - Access Denied
