You can get the Office apps Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook for free on the iPhone and iPad. But if you have an iPad Pro you have to subscribe to Office 365 in order to be able to create and edit files.
This is because Microsoft assumes that if you are using a device with a screen bigger than 10.1 inches you are using it for professional purposes. These Microsoft business people became really smart; didn’t they? Thank you Apple for the less greedy apps like Pages and Numbers.
I use Kingsoft office, it is totally free and far better than Windows Office as it resides on your desktop or laptop, not online where it can be accessed by others. WPS or Kingsoft Office is my go-to program because I can use it fully even when there is no internet connection. I have a copy of Windows Office that I own bought years ago and still does what any word processing program can do, with out being totally reliant on having an internet connection. There is zero reason that a word processing program needs to be accessible by others online or off. Always make sure what you use can be used when there is no connection to the outside world and resides solely on a system under your full control.
1 good way to have office: type "office 365" in eBay and you will find office in 2-5$ now that's CHEAP. I bought and it works, I'm super happy. if you don't need the functionality of office or you just need the basics then you have wordpad(its enough for most users anyway) free in windows, just type it on search and you will find it. glad I could help.
Turns out my university did buy license for its students and faculty members but they never told us about it, maybe they did, I didn't pay attention. They announce a lot of stuff on the official university site, not all of us keep track of all that stuff.
Downloading the full legit retail version of Microsoft Office for free now, thank you for making this video :)
hello, i know this is a long shot but can i use your account for my chromebook? subscription is required and free trial requires debit/credit verification so yeah :/ its to activate the playstore version
Microsoft free to scholars is *heroine marketing* tactic. If you are in to word processors, get *libreoffice* for free. I use *texlive* for free and never word processors. *Tex* contains professional typesetting conventions as defaults inside macros.
Yeah me too, I bought (rented) it then I did not renew. It would not permit me to do anything but print out my xl or doc files. No copy and paste to other systems. Wish I had check this out before I "rented" the suite. Lost a bunch of files.
Nice story, but reality is totally different of course. Office 365 is a disaster when you are a Mac user. I had office 2011 installed with all my history mails in there ever since 1998. When I installed office 365 the install program ERASED my entire history files. When I called Microsoft support they literally said that they do NOT support microsoft office 365 on MAC and disconnected...
Luckily, I have an Apple time machine and could re-install my back-up from minutes before the install of 365. So, Office 365 is 4 times more expensive than buying a normal license AND it erases your data. Which idiot creates an install program that erases the files of previous versions?
Yeah.......no....not EVER giving Microsoft my CC#.....to have them make a "mistake" further on down the line and grab funds from me. I'll stick to LibreOffice and WPS. Nothing else compares to these, the do everything I want them to do and nothing I don't. Those that know?...."know"......those that don't?....."don't".
I tried the ways in the video but they don't work on my Dell Ubuntu 14.04 laptop. What gives? Oh, and I looked up what the alleged features Microsoft office is supposed to have and the preinstalled Libreoffice is already better. Like WAY better. Why would anyone even try to get Microsoft office free or paid so long as Libreoffice is out there?
Lol I just found out that I've been able to have a free and legit version of office for years and didn't even know it... Thanks.
Schools should probably tell their students that this is available to them tbh.
I'm in the US too Diane. I'm in Louisiana, so at times it doesn't feel like the US. 🙂 I just checked the links again in the description of this video and it is showing me a 1-month free trial. It's weird, I'm not sure why it is showing you a 14 day trial.
The link in the description is for the US version. When you land on the Microsoft page, make sure to click the 1-month trial link. As I mentioned in the video, you will need to give a credit or debit card which will be charged at the end of the trial. You would just need to set a reminder to cancel before the end of the trial.
Is there a way to integrate office online with google drive? Like dropbox opens .docx files in office word online, can i open a .docx file saved in google drive in office word online instead of google docs?
That would be complicating things since Office Online natively saves files to One Drive. You can now view .docx files in Google Drive but can't edit with Office Online via Google Drive. You may want to check out free software like LibreOffice or WPS Office which have good compatibility with MS Office.
I'm still using Lotus millennium edition on my Win 10. The WP is by far the best I've tried - and I've tried many! I have the student Office 2003 (I don't need anything more) which is necessary when I'm working on docs (rarely spreadsheets and I don't need to share databases), and initially found that the change to the X extensions was a pain. But MS actually gives a small program extension which allows your older Office suite to open and save in the new format. It says you might lose formatting and comments if you save as .docx for example, but as I've used it for proofreading - comments, highlights, typing extra words and so on - I've never had it go wrong. Yet! If I'm writing, I use Lotus's WP, save as .doc, and if necessary, open it in Office and save as .docx. That works too. Of course Open Office is free and does everything MS's suite does.
If you need to work with pdfs, Cute Writer is a free program (you will need another free program to set it up. It's available via Cute's site) and you save your document by pressing print and selecting Cute. You get a perfectly formed pdf in minutes. It's dealt with a document of around 700 pages without any bother. OO also saves to pdf. If you want to comment or do other editing on the pdf, the latest Adobe Reader gives a number of free features. If you want a full-on pdf program, Cute Professional is a far cheaper version than Adobe's. When I bought it, it was about a 10th of the price. I've used it a lot on systems from Win2000 Pro, XP and now 10. It works on all. HTH and thanks for your info. Office seems to be the ubiquitous suite of choice to work with, so knowing how to update mine free of charge could be very useful!
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
