Ideal for private users: Office 2019 Home and Student
The most valuable components for everyone who works from home, private users and students: The Office 2019 Home and Student version combines all this. It is a license for just one device, which contains the programs Word, Excel and PowerPoint. OneNote is also part of the package and can be downloaded from the Windows Store in Windows 10. Users store data either offline directly on the computer or online in the cloud using OneDrive or similar providers. “Do more at home or school”: This is Microsoft’s motto, which can also be adhered to with this edition of Office 2019.
Professional-looking documents can now be made more effective in Word 2019: Editing, checking the contents of the printout on the printer is done in one operation. In addition, the search function from the previous version is included so that beginners can quickly access all important functions in Word 2019. The Office 2019 Home and Student version also includes the integration of SVG graphics, which are easier to scale and move than JPG or PNG graphics. Those who use a pen to write on a touch screen will also be delighted to find improved character recognition. This is especially helpful when taking notes.
PowerPoint 2019, on the other hand, is perfect for presentations: The well-known tool allows users to design slides and complete presentations on a professional level. Ideas and information can thus be presented in a more visually and acoustically appealing way. New in PowerPoint in Office 2019 and all versions is the use of recordings in Ultra-HD resolution, so that 4K videos can now be smoothly integrated into the slides. Improved support for zooming and scaling existing photos or other graphics also eliminates the need to purchase additional image processing software. From simple slides to slides with several pages, PowerPoint 2019 is the ideal tool.
With Excel 2019, on the other hand, buyers of this license have the familiar application for managing tables at their disposal. Data of any kind can be entered easily and intuitively and processed visually. Key combinations allow quick access to the most important functions for users who work with Excel on a daily basis. Improved features in the new version include, among other things, the mathematical functions, of which there are now many more in the package. In addition, the application provides new methods for displaying data in a visually appealing way and thus provides a tool for visualisation. This saves time for all users, yet they still enjoy the familiar workflow with Excel.
OneNote is no longer an integral part of the Office 2019 Home and Student package. Instead, those who are interested can download the program from the Windows Store. Microsoft has also removed compatibility with all older versions of Windows. Windows 10 must be installed on the device to take advantage of Office 2019 and all the applications it includes. However, it is a permanently usable license that is updated by Microsoft for at least five years. Unlike Office 365, there are no subscription fees. Backing up data in OneDrive may result in additional costs.
