Just a few days ago, Microsoft has officially announced that they will be pulling the plug on Office 2010. That does not mean that you will be unable to use the version of the program if you already own it or acquire it from somewhere, but it does mean that Microsoft will no longer be providing any support, patches, or updates pertaining to the Office 2010 package in particular. The support will end on October 13, 2020, so almost a year from now. Microsoft 2010 is officially about to complete its life cycle, which is a 10 year affair, and has served many across its lifetime.
The lack of extended support from there on out means that any bugs or vulnerabilities or security issues that are discovered after the life cycle deadline will no longer be solved or fixed by Microsoft as they will have moved on from the product. This does not bode well for businesses that are suing Microsoft 2010 in their workplaces primarily since you always want to ensure that the transfer and sharing of data in your network is done through safe and secure channels that do not threaten the integrity of the data and, subsequently, the credibility of the company that is handling the data itself.
That is why Microsoft is urging all of its users that are currently based on Office 2010 to make the shift to some of the recent versions that are still supported by Microsoft and will be for the next decade or so. They are also more up to date versions and are much more modern business oriented, equipped with all the necessary tools and applications that you may not have been able to make full use of with Office 2010. The www.office.com/setup 365 ProPlus is the ideal package for most businesses that are looking to make the jump from the older and almost obsolete Office 2010, a package that harbors a number of new and improved products along with regular updates that keep its features fresh and optimized.
The Office 365 ProPlus package includes complete versions of all of the basic applications of Office that you may expect, including but not limited to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, Publisher, as well as Skype for Business. Downloading and installing Office 365 ProPlus is just as easy as any other version of the program. All you have to do is go to office.com/setup and follow all of the basic installation steps. When you make the purchase of the Office 365 ProPlus subscription, you will be given a ms office setup product key. Go to ms office setup, login to your Microsoft account, and enter your www.office.com/setup product key. Download the installation file, run it, and complete the installation process.
