Manage the account you use with Office

For all Office 365 subscriptions and since Office 2013 you need an account associated with Office to manage your subscription and to install or reinstall Office.

Sign in to manage Office

  1. Go to www.office.com and if you’re not already signed in, sign in with your personal Microsoft account, or work or school account when prompted.

    Tip: If you can’t remember which email address you associated with Office, see I can't remember the Microsoft account I use with Office.

  2. From the upper-right corner select your account name, and then select My account from the list of options.

What you can do next depends on the type of account you signed in with.

Microsoft account

If you signed in with a Microsoft account, you'll go to account.microsoft.com. This is where you can manage any Microsoft products associated with this account.

From the header, select Services & subscription and search for your Office product from the list of products and services associated with this account. Depending on your product this is where you can:

  • Manage your Microsoft account, update your password, set additional security settings, and update your billing information

  • View all Microsoft products, including Office products, that are associated with this account

  • Install or reinstall Office on your device

  • For Office 365 subscriptions only:   

    • Deactivate Office on devices you're no longer using, renew Office 365, and manage your payment options,

    • If you have Office 365 Home, you can share your subscription, or if you're not the owner, see who's sharing with you.

Work or school account

If you signed in with a work or school account, you'll go to the My account page for your organization. This is where you can:

  • Deactivate installations on devices you no longer need

  • View what Office 365 subscription you have and see what licenses your Office 365 admin assigned you

  • Select Install status and install or reinstall the latest desktop version of Office (if you have a license to install Office)

For Office 365 admins only   If you're the Office 365 admin in your organization, you control what you want your users to have access to. Go to the Office 365 Admin help center for more information about setting up users.
