How to upgrade from Office 2010 to Office 365



As Microsoft prepares to end support for Office 2010 on October 13th, upgrading to Office 365 is one of your main options.

We know that the move from directly owning software to paying for a subscription is a big change that many people fear. In fact, you can still buy Office 2019 as a standalone product if you want to stick with the tradition.

However, the subscription model has its advantages. You don’t have to mess around with downloads, discs, or product keys. You will receive constant updates, including bug fixes, security patches, and new features. Microsoft’s subscriptions also provide flexibility in the number of users and computers that can access a product so that you don’t have to juggle multiple different copies of the same software together.

This is how it works.

How to upgrade Office 2010 from the current software on your system to Office 365

A simple upgrade is actually very easy. If you have a single standalone PC, this can be done from any of your current Office suite programs.

Open Word, Excel, Outlook, or PowerPoint and choose file > account > Update options, then choose Update now from the drop down menu. In Outlook it is file > Office account > Update options > Update now. Then just follow the online instructions.
