When Office 365 Home, Personal, and University were introduced, you had to always be online to install your office desktop apps. Once they were installed, however, you could go offline and still use those apps. But always relying on an online installer can be difficult for places with slow or unreliable internet connection. But now, Microsoft offers you the ability to install your Office apps offline.
Offline installers help users with poor internet connection get going quickly. It is also useful for those who want to quickly set up their Office applications on multiple PCs in batch, over a network for instance.
Here’s how to grab an offline copy of Microsoft Office 2016 if you are an Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscriber.
