Office 2013 Quick Start Guides

In my last role as a Technical Account Manager supporting large corporate and public sector customers, I often had discussions regarding moving to the latest versions of Office.

Funny enough, the answer in a lot of cases was not the ones I expected (licensing and/or cost). But the fact the training budgets were cut and that users needed more hand holding that the IT group could handle.

This weekend I found link on the Office online site that I just had to share.

Quick Start Guides for:

  • Access 2013
  • Excel 2013
  • OneNote 2013
  • Outlook 2013
  • PowerPoint 2013
  • roject Standard 2013
  • Publisher 2013
  • Visio 2013

Are now available for download here.


If you're new to Office 2013, these free guides offers useful tips to help you find your way around the best productivity suite on the planet.

Also, you can find a series of very short videos outlining the new goodness in Office 2013 here.

Take a look and let me know if this helps.

    cannot open in iexplorer, rather is possible in chrome

    I wonder why Microsoft document needs Chrome to be retrieved

    Hello Fabio,

    I saw your comment and immediately tried it on three different machines (2 Windows 8 and one Windows 7) using IE 9 and IE 10 without any issues.

    I suspect that your PDF plugin may have some issue.

    Thanks for the comment.
