    Office for Windows 10


    One of my friends wants to buy a copy of Office that will run on Windows 10. Which versions of Office will work on WIn10?

    Also, am I correct in understanding that Office 365 is some kind of arrangement where you have to pay for it every year, instead of buying it once and owning the program? Can you still buy "permanent" copies or is Office 365 the only way to get Office now?

    She really only needs Word and PowerPoint so would she save money to buy just those programs or is that not even an option any more?

    RE : One of my friends wants to buy a copy of Office that will run on Windows 10. Which versions of Office will work on WIn10?

    Most MS Office versions still work in Windows 10.
    In fact, version 2003 is not certified to be supported by Windows 10 and yet many users claim they can still use 2003 version.
    I have a 2007 Home & Student version and it works perfectly.

    I may be wrong on this, but as far as I know, it is a subscription variety.

    No. You have to buy the package.
    I would suggest that you have a look at 2016 Home and Student.

    It includes Words, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

    Anything after Office 2003 will work.

    For just Work and Powerpoint you could go for the Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 at $120 (permanent license). You needn't be a student..

    The alternative is an Office 365 subscription (which has Excel, Outlook and OneDrive storage as well). It is is $70 (1 PC) or $100 (5 PCs) annually which if you only want Word and Powerpoint would get more expensive quite quickly. Office 365 – Home, Personal and Business Editions - Microsoft Store
