  6. Please Fix the "Select Office for this device" screen

    I have one Personal Email connected to 6 Copies of Microsoft Office 2016 products.

  14. Off-line Help

    Excel Help should be configured like the Windows O/S. The basic Help package should loaded when Excel is installed. Help updates should be applied (as available) as the user connects to the Internet. This would allow users to operate in an off-line environment - as many of us still do, and still have access to Excel Help functions.

  15. I am in Mexico. When I go to office365.com/en it takes me to the Spanish Page. I don't understand why.

    Recognize the language of the computer and naturally put them in that language.

  16. Rows to repeat at top of page (headings)

    This used to be a thing in Excel. In Page Setup you could specify rows to repeat on each page (top/bottom/side) for things like column headings.

  17. Microsoft Office - Family License

    The current strategy of Microsoft is to sell either office 365 (yearly subscription) or single permanent license products. This I discovered only today after purchasing a new laptop for the family and tried to get my recently purchased office installed on the new PC. It would not let me do this (even under the same user account) , since I have my recently purchased office on my other PC.

    I feel this strategy is very unfriendly toward family consumers, as I have to sepdn 150 EUR for each PC to install office on it and allow all members of my…
