Microsoft has released the Office 365 configuration tool, which helps you configure your outlook with Office 365. The tool will help you download and install updates required for running Office online. Though the process is simple, it’s easier if you have a guide that outlines all the necessary steps, from downloading to installation and configuration.
Read on if you’re wondering how to install and configure Office 365 or go about Office 365 tenant setup.
Step 1: Go to Microsoft and download the tool
In the first step, you will need to download and install the configuration tool from Microsoft. This small executable file connects to your account on Office 365—it will not take up much space and should not require any special permissions to run.
Once you’ve clicked on the link of the downloadable file, you’ll be directed to a page where you can download the configuration tool for your preferred platform (Windows or Mac). You can also choose whether or not to send anonymous usage data back to Microsoft as part of their ongoing efforts to improve this tool and other products like it.
Step 2: Choose the correct version
After clicking the downloadable file link, you will be presented with a dialog box showing which version of the tool is appropriate for your operating system. If you have an x64 OS (64-bit)
Select “Office 365 Client Configuration Tool for Windows” and click Next.
The 32-bit option may also be available if you run a 32-bit OS. However, as most new computers are 64-bit systems nowadays and almost all modern browsers work on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows without issue, we recommend using the 64-bit version whenever possible. This is especially true when setting up Office 2016. This is also true if you’re setting up later versions of Word or Excel on Windows computers that don’t already run them natively from an online web browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
This includes most newer ones since 2010 when Microsoft started phasing out support for IE8 due to security vulnerabilities found within it after being released back in 2009 so that users could upgrade their software instead.
Step 3: Initiate the installation
Click the run button to start the installation of the configuration tool. Follow the on-screen instructions and click the close button to exit the setup wizard after installation is completed successfully. Click on the run button to install the configuration tool.
- If you don’t see the run button, click on the blue “download button.”
- You need to download the tool if you don’t have the run button.
- If you don’t see the download button, click on the blue “download button.”
Step 4: Enter your credentials
Click the close button. You will now be prompted to enter your credentials. Enter your username and password, then click OK. Now, you’ll need to provide an email address so that Office 365 can send you notifications about important events and changes related to your account; this is also how you’ll receive new security codes if you ever lose or forget them.
Once setup is complete, click the close button to exit the setup wizard. Once you’ve finished installing the configuration tool, you’ll have to close the setup wizard before you can use it. You can do this by clicking on one of the following buttons:
- Close button
- Finish button
- Okay button
- Exit button (in some cases)
- Yes button (in most cases)
