How to access your Office 365 Portal
The Office 365 Portal provides access to all of your Microsoft Office solutions that are based in the cloud. This includes apps, services and storage.
Navigate the Office 365 Portal
The Office.com portal for Office 365 has four purposes.
- Quick access to all your online Office 365 apps & services. Includes a description of each service.
- A download link to install your Office 365 apps on PC or Mac. E.g. Word, PowerPoint, Outlook.
- The app launcher (present in all office.com apps and services).
- Quick access to your cloud storage in OneDrive or SharePoint.
Office 365 App Launcher
The Office 365 app launcher is a universal menu that exists in all services and apps online.
If you access your Office 365 services and apps via a web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge), the app launcher is a quick way to jump between them. For example, going from Outlook to OneNote, or Word to PowerPoint.
Access the app launcher by clicking the dial-pad like button in the top left corner of the screen, circled red in the image to the right.
