If you're opening Office XP programs and are unsure where to start, let this free lesson help.

Installing Office XP

Before you can begin using Office XP, you must load—or install—the software on your computer.

To install Office XP:
  • Insert the disk into the CD-ROM drive.
  • Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
  • More detailed information is provided in Setup's Help section.
  • Keep all installation information and the CD-ROM for your records.

If you are using Office XP at work, you probably don't need to install Office XP on your own. Rather, your network administrator probably installed Office XP on your computer using a network file server or shared folder.
