When you purchase the desired subscription of Microsoft Office, then office.com/setup is your one-stop destination from where you can easily set it up for the first time. For beginners, this platform turns out to be an essential place from where they can get started. But to get started, you must have an Office account. In case, a user has a Microsoft account, Xbox, or Skype account, then he doesn’t need to create a new. If he doesn’t have it, then signing up is necessary.
Without an Office account, you won’t be able to use your subscription, download, install, or activate it. On top of that, you can never renew your subscription or add devices to the previously purchased ones. This account lets you do more than just downloading your subscription, but allows you to edit or change billing information as well. Interested users can continue reading this document further to know more about the Office account.
