    I installed the 180-day trial on builds 10074 and 10102 but couldn't find many new things

    I show that too @jimbo45, but on the start menu it says 2013

    Hi there

    On mine -- no display of Office 2013 (that's because I never had it). Office 2010 is still there because I never uninstalled it and it also works. Even Outlook 2010 still works -- but don't try Outlook 2010 and 2016 concurrently as they use the same outlook data files. Excel 2010 and 2016 work together -- no problem.

    Your menu might be showing office 2013 because it's either still completely or partially installed.

    Screenshot with EXCEL 2010 and 2016 both working concurrently. (64 bit versions)


    Cheers

    Are the Save & Save As features the same as usual in this version

    I read somewhere that they have gone down the OSX route (introduced in Lion not sure about later) where it auto saves your document without you doing anything, but not sure if this is related to the online version

    So if you open a word document
    Accidently change something and then close it, you get no prompt asking if you want to save changes, it just does it

    I think that in the Office Online you can revert the changes using Version History on the document. There is just Save As, not a Save button and I remember some time ago this got mentioned on Office Blog.

    Thanks, hopefully this is just the online version, it was a few weeks ago so I cant remember where I read about this

    As long as the main office programs don't go this route (or if they do give an option to turn it off)

    I have been messing around with this a lot and I have sent several messages to Microsoft. Bottom line, I like Office 2016.

    You have to scroll down... it's the last item.
    That's 'cause W is the last letter in the alphabet for Office apps.

    Only problem I had with the install is it would not accept my Microsoft account, had to use the Product Key instead. Still don't like the creation of business cards in Word.
    Berton, this is the .msi version; thus, you have to enter the product key in order to activate it. And, of course, the product key has to be entered with each new installation.

    You have to have an active subscription to Office 365, in order to test that version. You do have to enter the product key on the first install, but once it's installed, if you transfer it to another machine, then you only have to sign in with your account credentials.

    Lastly, although you may be able to install the Preview on multiple machines, once it's released, your license will allow it to only be installed on one machine.

    I just have one question right now about this Office 2016 preview. (I will probably have more questions as time goes by.) Does everybody get the Office Professional version, or do just some people get that? I ask because is definitely the Professional version.
    I believe only the Professional version is available for download. Like Windows, it seems that Microsoft is going to only one version of its products in order to simplify matters.

    Yes, they are, Paul.

    Not true, Paul. I've been on Office 365 2016 (features are pretty much, if not exactly, the same) for awhile now and I can tell you there's not a word of truth to that. If I close a document without saving it, I will definitely be prompted to save it. Here is what I get.

Hi there I think this comment is allowed - there is an NDA but I think this is OK. The latest update installs OFFICE 2016 just fine and works OK. Office 2010 is left untouched so you can run BOTH concurrently. OUTLOOK 2016 though uses the same...
