What is Microsoft Office 2021?

Microsoft Office 2021 is a suite of software applications that can make completing tasks on a computer easier and improve efficiency. Of these software applications, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are the most popular and most used by consumers. However, Microsoft Office contains more than just these applications. There are 5 different versions of Microsoft Office 2021 and the more elaborate the version purchased, the more applications are included. 

Microsoft Office 2021 will be supported and receive updates until 13-10-2026.

Microsoft Office 2021: versions

Microsoft Office 2021 has five different versions. The simplest and therefore cheapest version is Office Home & Student. This version offers the most basic applications but, as the name suggests, is intended for users who do not require a very complex license. The most complex version is Office 2021 Professional Plus. This license includes the most applications and is therefore the most comprehensive perpetual Office license that Microsoft offers. Between the two versions mentioned in this paragraph, there are several versions. To give a clear overview of what all these versions have to offer, take a look at the table below:


Microsoft Office LTSC 2021

It is also possible to purchase Microsoft LTSC 2021. LTSC stands for Long Term Servicing Channel, which means that Microsoft LTSC 2021 is a perpetual version of Microsoft Office 2021. This license is available on PC and Mac and is supported by Microsoft for 5 years, i.e. until 2026. An important difference between Office 2021 LTSC and Office 2021 is that Office LTSC is intended exclusively for businesses and governments, while Office 2021 is mainly intended for consumers.

To install Office LTSC 2021, download the Office Deployment Tool from the Microsoft Download Center and generate the file "congifuration.xml". Then the next step is to download the Office LTSC 2021 installation files. However, this step is only intended for users who do not install via Office CDN. Otherwise, you can skip this step. The last step is to use the Office Deployment Tool to install Office LTSC 2021.
