Office in the Microsoft Store

If you have a new Surface Laptop, Microsoft Office is available for download from the Microsoft Store. This edition of Office brings you all of the great apps and features with the security of the Windows 10 S operating system.

To download Office on Windows 10 S, click the Start button on the Windows task bar, and select one of the Office app tiles. This will take you to the Microsoft Store to download and install a free one-year subscription of Office 365.

Where do I get OneNote?

OneNote comes pre-installed on all editions of Windows 10 — including Windows 10 S. The app also comes with Office in the Microsoft Store and includes a few subscriber-only features like ink effects and Researcher. If you already have Office 365, simply sign into OneNote to start using these features.
