4fii. Accessing Cloud Content from Other Instances of Microsoft Office Applications

If you have Microsoft Office installed on more than one computer, but you have not yet installed the desktop client on each machine, Microsoft Office will prompt you to install the desktop client.

  1. Open a Microsoft Office application on your local machine and click the Account link. The Account section of the backstage area displays, allowing you to manage your account information.
  2. If you have not already signed in to your Microsoft or Microsoft Office 365 account, click the Sign In button.
  3. When you are signed in, you will see a warning message if you do not have the desktop client service installed.
  4. Click the Repair button. A browser window will open, prompting you to download and install the desktop client. When the desktop client is installed, you can access your synced content from within your local Microsoft Office applications.
