Accessing ProPlus and installing Office
Note for Mac users: Office 365 ProPlus allows you to install Microsoft Office 2016 only if you have OS X 10.10 or later. After installing Microsoft Office 2016, your Microsoft Office 2011 applications (if previously installed) will still exist in Applications in a folder titled Microsoft Office 2011.
