Microsoft’s instructions are very clear and easy to follow, so you won’t get lost with downloading the files. 


Device Storage Space 

Installation is streamlined and easy, using the App-V technology to make sure installation is unintrusive. The App-V technology minimises how much data the Office 365 suite takes up of the device’s storage space, so it’s unlikely that storage will be an issue with installation.
