Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on Sticky

Office 2016 is the latest version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, succeeding Office 2013. New features of Office 16 include the ability to manage and work with files in Microsoft OneDrive from the lock screen, a powerful search tool for support and commands called “Tell me” and co-authoring mode with users connected to Office Online.

Download original Office 2016 ISO

You can get the latest version of Microsoft Office 2016 here if you don’t have it. Once your download is complete, you need to extract the original ISO image from the zip file. You will be left with a file named “SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2016_W32_English…” (W32 here in the filename refers to the 32-bit version, if you download the 64-bit version, the filename will contain 64Bit instead). Although an ISO file is used to burn CD or DVD, you can install Office 2016 without burning it using 7-zip or similar archive software utility. Here is what you get after extracting the ISO file.


Installing Microsoft Office 2016

Simply run the setup file (named setup.exe) to install Office on your Windows.



Note: By default, Office will be installed in C:\Program Files.

    Hey MSGuides,
    I am not a native English speaker, that’s why I would like to download a language pack. But when I try installing it, it isn’t working.
    Can you provide the language packs too?
    Apart from this small problem, it’s working perfectly fine 😀

    I have done the same thing which you said to do but it is still showing me that “your subscription has expired”.
    What to do now?
