Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013, 1 PC

Product information

Simplify your home life and homework with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013. Office 2013 comes with a fresh look and give you more control over your documents, spreadsheets, presentations and notes. Office 2013 features new screen layouts and makes the tools you need as accessible as possible and is touch screen compatible. With 7GB of online cloud storage available from SkyDrive and full compatibility with free Office Web Apps, so you can access and edit your documents from anywhere with an internet connection.

Microsoft's premier word processor, Word is user-friendly and versatile. Microsoft Word is ideal for writing letters, completing homework, taking notes and a variety of other household tasks. 40 pre-installed templates will help you give your document the look to suit, or you can start with a blank page to create your own design. You can include images, tables, graphs and videos in your document and even edit PDFs, while the new Read Mode delivers a sophisticated method to navigate and view documents.

Excel is so much more than a program for creating tables, it's also a powerful tool for calculating advanced formulas and creating graphs to present your data. Excel is ideal for all of your family's needs, whether you're keeping track of your household accounts, doing your homework or planning holiday expenses. Excel is designed to work across different workbooks, so you can easily pull data from one document to another, making it easier to compare data and spot trends. Separate workbooks also open in new windows too, making it even easier to look at data side-by-side. Pre-created templates will help you visualise, analyse, and make conclusions with a few simple clicks, or you can design your own worksheets from scratch.

OneNote makes it easy to create interactive notes for access on the go. With OneNote, you can send web pages, documents and quicknotes to the notebook of your choice and annotate them how you like. If you're using a touch screen device, you can use a stylus to draw, handwrite and swipe notes too, making note taking just as easy as with a pen and paper. OneNote also employs intelligent recognition software to make your notes searchable, so it'll be easy to find the clipping you took from a website, or a handwritten note you scribbled down in a hurry.

PowerPoint makes creating presentations fun, whether it's for a meeting, a presentation at school, or simply showing off your holiday snaps and videos. Themes, colour matching and templates make it easy to create attractive slideshows to showcase your ideas, while Presenter View allows you to show your audience the slide and keep your notes to yourself on a separate screen.

SkyDrive is an online cloud storage surface from Microsoft that makes it easy to access to your photos and documents from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. It's accessible on PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones and automatically syncs across all of your devices, so your files will always be up to date. All SkyDrive users start with 7GB of free online storage, giving you plenty of room to keep your most important documents easily accessible.

System Requirements

PC Minimum System Requirements:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster x86-bit or x64-bit processor with SSE2
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit); 2 GB RAM (64-bit).
  • 3.0 GB of available disk space
  • Graphics hardware acceleration requires a DirectX 10 graphics card and 1024 x 576 resolution.
  • .NET 3.5, 4.0 or 4.5
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012

Other Requirements
  • A touch-enabled device is required to use any multi-touch functionality. However, all features and functionality are always available by using a keyboard, mouse, or other standard or accessible input device. Note that new touch features are optimised for use with Windows 8.
  • Some functionality may vary, based on the system configuration. Some features may require additional or advanced hardware or server connectivity.

Please Note: System requirements are rounded up to the nearest 0.5 GB, to be conservative. For example, if we measure an application’s required hard disk space to be 1.99 GB, we recommend 2.5 GB of disk space. Our hard disk system requirements are intentionally larger than the actual disk space usage of the software.

A graphics processor helps increase the performance of certain features, such as drawing tables in Excel 2013 or transitions, animations, and video integration in PowerPoint 2013. Use of a graphics processor with Office 2013 requires a Microsoft DirectX 10-compliant graphics processor that has 64 MB of video memory. These processors were widely available in 2007. Most computers that are available today include a graphics processor that meets or exceeds this standard. However, if you or your users do not have a graphics processor, you can still run Office 2013.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product A very good product if a little more complicated than the old version. Will get used to it eventually. 31 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Office Program?? I upgraded from Office 2007 and the first thing to say is that the "apparent" limitation of 1 PC is not an accurate reflection of the true case. I have my "1 PC" Office installed on a laptop and PC. Google it to find more details. Office 2013 is a mild improvement on 2007 with charting and Pivot Tables the most obvious examples although there are other aspects. Installation was straightforward including on the laptop which required a fairly long call on a freephone (0800) number. It is quite a lot of money to pay for a relatively small improvement but for a heavy user it is worth the candle IMHO. 15 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install This product arrived very quickly and was exactly as described. It was very easy to install for someone who is not a computer geek! 21 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything you need If you are looking for the basic office programmes this is perfect for all your needs. After a short time I found it really easy to use both excel and word. One note especially useful ! 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Office for home and students Microsoft Office Home and Student is the first package in the range of the new Microsoft Office suit. This version of office includes: Word - For word processing, letters and documents. Excel - For spread sheets PowerPoint - For presentation and slides OneNote - A digital scrapbook for multiple different uses from organising events to creating cooking scrapbooks . This version of Microsoft Office Home and Student is licenced for one computer but has no expiry like previous versions of office. Office 2013 has been refined for both a mouse and keyboard interface or touch screens simply by selecting the input option on the top of the programs, making it suitable for normal and touch screen systems. 13 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 8 had initially been a struggle for me at age 70, however, once the basics were taken on board with the help of a Windows 8 'user guide', I found Office & Student to be much easier to use over 3 PCs than I had expected. It has great flexibility and is a huge improvement on my previous software 01 December 2013
