  1. Open the Control Panel.

    Tip: If you installed the Office apps as part of a suite, such as Office Home and Student or Microsoft 365, search for the suite name. For stand-alone apps search by the app name, such as Project or Visio.

      2. Select Office 365 apps to begin the installation.The 64-bit version is installed by default unless Office detects you already have a 32-bit version of Office (or a stand-alone Office app such as Project or Visio) installed.
