Description: The author of the article wants to show us the details on how to install office 2016 from office 365 portal and how we can configure outlook.
Welcome to our Windows 10 for home users and IT professional course. We will install office 2016 from office 365 portal and we will also configure outlook. The first thing you will do is that you will open your internet and I’m using edge, which is the browser Microsoft edge and you’ll go to your portal that office com.
Now this is where if you have a work or school account, this is where if your student and you have office three to five or you bought office 65, this is where you will need to put your email address and password, and then it will take you to your portal. So once you log in, it’s very simple, you’ll click on install.
It started to install, if you were using Mac or different types of computer they support that, it will give you the installer for that specific device, and I’m using Windows Microsoft engine. We’re going to click on run, and we will click accept. This could be a good question to ask how you know, it’s 2016 off. So if you click on other install on the top, it also tells you 2016.
But you’re downloading 2016, what if you want 2013? You can scroll down and you will see 2013, so I can also install that. But since we clicked on installing 2016 Pro plus, I am getting that one, and with that, I’m going to get all of this, all this stuff here.
So we will configure our outlook to clarify. We did our setup windows 10 mail, this is Outlook software from Microsoft it comes with this office full software installation, it’s not this when you go to start and click on this, this is different, this is a hap which is cool.
So if you want to see the installation on that one, make sure you take this section in our Windows 10 training course, that’s installing, let’s talk about some of the other things like what if you come across some types of issues to four issues, and you get some types of errors, make sure you click on this link, it will take you to different types of codes.
So you’ll get another code, I don’t know exactly what you’re going to get, so you need to click on this and follow the directions if you have any issues. Another way is to check your space, you’re not running out of space on your computer, another way is to uninstall any old Microsoft Office applications and try to install this and that usually solves issues like that.
So we have our office 2016 ready, now this section could be for anyone and home users, IT users. I mean you get a call a home user, how do I get to my applications, so they will click on start and in all apps, you can see recently added or the new ones. We install everything from Microsoft Office, this is a good opportunity to use for you to quickly move it somewhere.
I want to make things easier for myself, and I want to get to my office quickly. So one way is to click on, I can scroll down and find each individual application under its letter S, sees P PowerPoint, which is good, but you want to separate it. What we can do is to move all of this.
I’m going to move the PowerPoint to my desktop, and this way you can move your outlook desktop. I don’t need to open this again, accept that, so I’m going to go back and move my outlook to my desktop.
Now you can leave it on desktop, that’s another way, but you can make a folder and we’re going to call it application. We’re going to call it apps and what you can do? You can hit control, pick all of these three, drop it into this folder. And what you can do is to click on the taskbar, and you can go to tools add a new toolbar, go to desktop and click on apps and select folder.
So you have the folder, you don’t need to put it on the desktop, you can access all of your applications like this, so that makes it easy for you. If you want to make it a standard for all the users, you can tell users, and they will say how I get to my applications for the company application. So you can make this a standard way of accessing all the applications, so people are not running around looking for applications all over the the PC.
We are going to set up Outlook, it’s still getting finished now. This is not a good way to open outlook before it’s finished, I wanted to make it quicker, so you want to make sure that it’s fully done, then open outlook or word anything like that. So I’m going to go ahead and open outlook, welcome to Outlook.
Would you like to set up outlook? Click Next, you will put your name, your email address and the password. Now I should automatically pick it up your office 365 account, and it will add your account. It’s searching for the server, once you use the the email and the password, then you’ll get a security prompt like that, and this is where you will put your email and password again.
Now this could be a call to you also for a 90 person that why is it prompting me again when I open outlook, they need to click check box, this remember my credentials, and then it won’t do that. So you’ll see these three green checks, that means everything is great, so let’s go ahead and finish it.
And we should be getting into our Outlook email, preparing outlook for the first use, so this is what you will get, it’s connecting and updating, you will get your email in about a minute or two. I put the notepad for privacy reasons, but you can see everything is working great.
Now what if you have issues with Outlook? This is great for everyone, I would say IT or non IT users, Outlook is a software that everyone use in a Microsoft world, so everything is great and installation is finished. So how do you troubleshoot Outlook? Let’s say you’re having an issue with Outlook and you didn’t configure all that, or maybe some user call you that I’m having issue.
And this point, their emails are on the server, meaning their emails are secure, all you’re having an issue with is to ask line outlook, something is not working, emails are not setting through, and it’s in this PC. I need to refresh it, I want to start everything from scratch, you don’t need to uninstall the whole outlook or do things with it.
You can go to the user, you go to admin and for this folder. And check this hidden items, and then you will see this folder App Data, then you will go to local and Microsoft Outlook. Now you want to copy this, put it somewhere, maybe you still need it in case.
But I say that at the beginning, because you went to portal dot office comm, and you see the emails are there. It’s this client, this is where you will do this, but you can also copy this. I’m going to go ahead and delete this folder. Now I’m going to go and start and go back to my applications and it’s right here. And here is that look, I’m going to click on that close this.
Now did you notice anything here preparing output for first use? Almost all the issues that are crazy issues that this outlook is not working correctly. It’s not sending email and some crazy things are happening, try this and trust me, it will fix almost all the issues.
But if you get some crazy errors and it’s corrupted and some other types of problems like your application is having issue, that’s Microsoft application or all you need to work on that. But usually this fixes most of the issues, but we’re going to do another outlook.
