What’s new in Office 2013

The first thing you’ll see when you open Microsoft Office is a clean, new look. But the features you know and use are still there—along with some new ones that are huge time savers. The new Office works in the cloud, even on PCs that don’t have Office installed. So now you can always get to your important files, no matter where you are.

Save and share files in the cloud

The cloud is like file storage in the sky. You can get to it anytime you’re online. Now it’s easy to save your Office files to your organization’s Office 365 site. From there you can access and share your Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.
