Yes, those Microsoft Office Word / Excel program are compatible with windows 8.1.If you have the Microsoft Office CD disk or download and the license/product key for it, then you can install it on your windows 8.1 computer now.
Note: If you do not have the office cd disk or license/product key, then I'll let you know some alternate solutions.Please click on the Reply to Expert tab below, and reply back to me, so I can help further if there is still any issue. Thank you,
Yes I have downloaded the Winsows 8.1 and I have my Product key.
Do I just go ahead and install 8.1.
Should I back up my system first.
When I back up me Cdrive should the backup include all my programmes as well or will the bach up include My Documents only?
