Microsoft Office 2013
Category: Supported Office versions
Microsoft Office 2013 is the successor to Microsoft Office 2010. It includes support for extended file format, updates to the user interface and support for touch among its new features.

This version includes new features such as support for integration of online services (including OneDrive,, Skype, Yammer, and Flickr), improved support for Office Open XML (OOXML), OpenDocument (ODF) and Portable Document Format (PDF), and support for multi-touch interfaces.

Microsoft Office 2013 is available in twelve different editions, including three retail store releases, two collective licensing channel releases, five subscription-based releases available in Microsoft Office 365, a web application release known as Office Web Apps, and an Office RT release for tablets and mobile devices. Office Web Apps are available free of charge on the Internet, although businesses can get local installations for a certain price. Microsoft Office applications can be obtained separately; this includes Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Project and Microsoft SharePoint Designer, which are not included in any of the twelve editions.

Office 2013 uses the cloud much more than its predecessors. It is noteworthy that the default location for saving user files is OneDrive space. Moreover, the data stored in the cloud files are synchronized with the local location. This allows the user to modify all documents even without an Internet connection. A full-screen reading mode has also been added. Before creating a document, the user can choose one of many themes in PowerPoint.
