One of the great features about your MyKolbe account is that it gives your student the ability to download Microsoft Office on up to 5 separate devices (computers, tablets, mobiles, etc.).  This article walks you through how to locate and download the install file for the Office Suite.


If You Already Have Microsoft Office…

If you already have an Office Suite installed on the computer your student will be using (or any one-off Microsoft applications, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) then the install will not be successful.  Microsoft does not allow duplicate instances of their Suite/products on a device.   If this is the case, it is recommended that you just use the Microsoft Suite already on your student’s computer, as the MyKolbe Microsoft license will be disabled after a student graduates or is no longer enrolled at Kolbe.


Downloading Microsoft Office

Once you have logged into your MyKolbe student account, you will be able to download Microsoft Office to use throughout your tenure at Kolbe Academy.


On the homepage of the MyKolbe account, locate the user icon to the top right of the page (this will either show a profile picture or your initials).  Click View account on the menu that appears. 



Scroll down and find the Office Apps tile. Click on the MANAGE link.



One the next screen, click the Install Office button.



This will prompt the file to be downloaded to your computer.



Installing Microsoft Office

Once the download is complete, locate and open the install file from your browser. Depending on the browser, you may see the file show up at the bottom of the browser window (as shown in the image below); otherwise, you will need to locate the file from the Downloads folder either from within the browser or from directly on the computer.



If the computer is using Windows 10, you will likely be prompted with a warning message that the app you are installing is not one that is verified from the Windows app store.  This is because you are downloading it from Microsoft’s website (through your MyKolbe account), instead of purchasing the apps from the Windows 10 Store.  Click the Install anyway button if you see this message.



When you are asked to enter your login information upon your first login to an Office app, enter your student’s MyKolbe email address and password.
