Microsoft Office 2016 Home Edition is powered by the cloud so you can access your documents anytime, anywhere, and on any device. It’s unmistakably Office – but thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the unique features of the Windows. Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers, and services for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, introduced by Microsoft. The new Microsoft Office includes updated versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook and the moment you open any one of the apps, you’ll immediately feel the difference. A refreshed task pane interface makes positioning, resizing, or rotating graphics easy so you can create exactly the layout you want. And new themes and styles help you pull it all together to produce stunning, professional documents.
The office is produced in several versions targeted towards different end-users and computing environments. The original, and most widely used version, is the desktop version, available for PCs running the Windows and macOS operating systems. Office in a browser, previously known as Office Online, is a version of the software that runs within a web browser, while Microsoft also maintains Office apps for Android and iOS. If you have PDF file, you want to read that file you just download PDF reader software.
Microsoft Office 2016 Home Edition Main Features
Additional Ribbon Button
In Microsoft Outlook,
Now you can archive items in Outlook with a single click by using the Archive button. Plus, browsing or adding new groups is simple with the addition of those two group buttons. If you do not see the new buttons, you will have to add them to your ribbon.
To do this quickly, just right-click on the ribbon and select Customize the Ribbon. Then search for the commands on the left and add them to the right.
In Microsoft Word and PowerPoint,
For adding comments and sharing with ease, Word and PowerPoint contain great collaboration features. You should see the sharing and commenting icons at the top right above your ribbon.
In addition, you can quickly view previous versions of a document with the Activity button on your ribbon. Once clicked, the side panel will open, showing what has happened with your document.
In Microsoft Outlook,
For capturing someone’s attention quickly, Outlook 2016 has a feature called Mentions. When crafting an email or calendar invitation, type the @ symbol and the first few letters of the person’s name into the body. You will then see a drop-down box displaying options from your contact list.
Once you select one, not only will that person’s name be highlighted in the message or invitation, but it will also automatically pop into the To line. Additionally, you will be able to sort your inbox by Mentions.
New and Improved Connection Options
In Microsoft Excel,
You can import data from SAP HANA databases, SharePoint folders, and online services such as Salesforce Objects or Reports. Select Data > New Query and then make the appropriate selection from the drop-down box.
The connectors for IBM DB2 and SQL Server Database have been improved as well. For IBM DB2 you can now choose the Microsoft driver and for SQL Server Database you can include schema information as part of the navigation hierarchy.

Some features added to Office 2016 are available across multiple applications. One such feature is the ability to publish documents to Docs.com. Select File > Publish and you will see the Docs.com options including document title and visibility choices.
You will need an account with Docs.com and you can create one using your email address or you can sign in with Facebook or your Microsoft account.
Publish to Power BI

Microsoft Office 2016 benefits
- Revamped favorites – The full Office for Windows 2016 suite includes new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Project, Visio, and Access.
- All in the Cloud – Microsoft continues to promote Office 365 as a more comprehensive set of Microsoft products than non-cloud Office 2016. Storing documents in the cloud and sharing them across devices becomes virtually seamless.
- Better project planning – New business 365 applications in the pipeline include Office 365 Planner (a lightweight Project planning app) and GigJam (a task completion service).
- Team collaboration – Office 365 Group, as part of Outlook 2016, creates public and private teams. Each group shares an inbox, calendar, group cloud storage, and a OneNote notebook.
- Attachment storage – Outlook attachments are now held in OneDrive and placeholders prevent storage of multiple copies of documents.
- Real-time co-authoring – Microsoft’s biggest theme with its new and pipeline Office 2016 suite is team collaboration and co-authoring. Virtual teams can work on a variety of documents with pre-established admin controls.
- Improved security – Office 2016 develops security solutions with Data Loss Prevention (applying central document authoring and sharing policies), Multifactor Authentication (secure remote content access) and more secure content sharing in Enterprise Data Protection on mobile devices used outside the corporate network.
- Enhanced productivity – Microsoft is emphasizing productivity over a technicality. Solutions focus on what things do rather than how they work – an ongoing cultural change in IT initiated by domestic technology. Business productivity is not obviously best reviewed by ‘back office’ technical IT teams who traditionally focus on how devices work and how they can be measured.
- An incremental approach – Microsoft’s plan is not to initiate huge innovation every few years but to make gradual and in some cases, slight changes across the product set to raise productivity and creativity. Changes will be more frequent but also more gradual.
