Mіcrosoft Wоrd on your MacBook

Mіcrosoft Wоrd for Mac and Windows were two completely different products aimed at different audiences for a long time. Microsoft Word for Mac is designed to change this situation fundamentally. The update is intended to bring both versions to a common denominator in design and features.

New MacBook users need a handy text editor when migrating from a popular Windows version. Word for macOS and other products of the Microsoft Office line adapted to the Apple style is available on the official website of software developers starting from the MS2010 version.

Microsoft Licensing Policy

The Excеl, PоwerPoint, Accеss, and Wоrd product line with the Outlook email client is included in the Office suite for various operating systems, distributed in 4 versions: from Free Trial, which allows you to use Microsoft products on macOS for free (only for new users, with the purchase of a MacBook), to a commercial multi-user license with advanced administration tools and additional libraries for writing macros in Visual Basic.

Most users will find Mіcrosoft Wоrd as part of their purchased Office Home & Student software or a Microsoft 365 subscription. A free trial is also available for new users.

Microsoft Word for Mac is a free office component for macOS computer users. Combines all the necessary functions for viewing and editing text documents.

For the convenience of work, two environments are provided: working and recording to prevent accidental changes to the document. A convenient document search is also available. The tool gallery is identical to the Windows application. And most importantly, the program is fully compatible with all Microsoft Word formats. We note the creation of macros for automating tasks, which simplifies the work.

The installation

System requirements:

  • 2.5 GB of free hard disk space;

  • HFS+ formatted hard disk;

  • DVD drive or LAN connection;

  • monitor with a resolution of 1280x800 or higher.

To install Microsоft Offіce on Mac computers (MacBook or iMac). The first thing to do is download Microsoft Office itself. You can download it from the App Store. You can start the installation just clicking twice on the file. Next, choose the installation method on a specific hard drive or for all users in your macOS. Next, you will be asked to remove the original distribution or leave it. You could delete the file itself if your installation were successful. After installation, all applications from Microsoft Office can be found in the "Launchpad" menu. Choose the one you need, for example, Microsoft Word, and get started! And also, by the way, you will need to activate Microsoft Office 365.


Despite the many analogs of Microsoft Word, it is the most popular text editor. Its equipment and expansion capabilities are unmatched on the market. It is also ideal for teamwork. Microsoft Word for Mac is inferior to similar programs for Windows and allows you to work with all Word documents without restrictions.
