Title and description reads a bit like this is a Microsoft product. Might want to make it clearer it isn't.
Reviewer saying this is just libre office with credits taken Link here

id rather use the original than this which i guess is a fork with not many changes ans therefore get updates properly from the source.

Has anyone received a verification code to actually install this? What a waste of time. No verification code received.

Just use office online 100% free and 100% compatible with office because it is office...

Otherwise just download Libre office rather than this rather shady looking fork.

You just log-in to any microsoft account and use it online in the browser - everything is saved automatically to you account and synced to onedrive if you use that on your desktop...

For most home users - there is nothing they would want to do that they cannot do in office online for free...

Isn’t that office 365? Thought you need to subscribe for that?

No - office365 gives you 1tb of storage, access to *desktop* apps with a whole range of additional features. Office online is free and has a limited set of features (and about 5gb of free storage) but plenty for a home user:

Well I never! So my daughter can access via laptop on Microsoft webpage? If she needs to save does it have to go in one drive or can it be saved to hard drive/removable storage? Thanks for the heads up
LibreOffice ftw.

Yes that is it - and that means she can access and edit it anywhere she can access a browser. If she wants the document off-line, she just needs to download it - however if uses onedrive on her PC it's automatically saved there anyway...

Don't forget Google Docs

I use google docs myself and it will handle word documents but if you are a microsoft user, you might as well cut out the middle man and use office online.

Can i save files offline with Office Online? Say i just want to make a normal word document, then save it as .docx on my computer locally. No problems or run into any paywalls?

No problems at all - I'm not sure how many different ways I can say FREE, ZERO, NOTHING, NIL.

Just be aware that it can sometimes do "strange things" when you try to print stuff out

Thanks, but obviously there has to be a catch somewhere since they have a pretty expensive paid version of this. If it was 100% free no need to buy the paid version at all

It is free, but you can only access/edit your files if you're online. It also worth mentioning that Microsoft online is not a full version. For example, some of the major features you’ll find missing in the online and mobile apps include:
Word: You cannot create captions, citations, bibliographies, tables of content. You cannot create or apply styles. And you won’t have access to some of the more advanced reviewing, proofing, or page layout tools.
Excel: You cannot create pivot tables, apply conditional formatting, create external data connections or references, or access many of the advanced formulas.

It's feature limited as I mention above - however the features it provides are pretty much what a home user would need (I'm not a home user so I pay for Office365).
For anybody confused about the different versions of MS office, check out you tube. Plenty of vlogs there. Also lots of vlogs on the FREE alternatives.
there's freeoffice and kingsoft office which are free to use. no need to buy m$ unless you are doing proper office work.
normally priced £164.99 , wow, better to just get office if that was the case.
