Microsoft Office 2013

Microsoft Office 2013

The new Office Suite is here, incorporating some aspects of previous versions with a cleaner, more intuitive interface and introducing new features to improve user experience. What sets Microsoft Office 2013 apart from its predecessors is its compatibility with smartphones, tablets, and even PCs that do not have Office installed. Computing on the cloud makes your Office documents available in a wide variety of ways.

Each program introduces new features - for example, the landing screen for Word, Excel, etc. that offer templates and options for opening pre-existing documents, or Word's Read Mode that allows users to view a document as if in a book. File sharing and shared meetings are streamlined and easy to use, and SkyDrive allows users to access their documents anywhere, anytime.
