Office 2016 for Mac


Office 2016 is Microsoft's most powerful and intuitive version of Office for the Mac released to date.  Tools such as OneNote and PivotTable Slicers, which were previously available only in versions of Office for Windows, are now available to Mac users. The ribbon menus have also been redesigned and organized, allowing you to quickly and intuitively find the features you need. And now, since the menus for the Mac and Windows versions are nearly identical, it is easier than ever before to switch back and forth between platforms.
