About Office: What version of Office am I using?

There are several versions of Office that your system could be running. If you are having issues due to a need for an update you may want to know what version of Office is installed on your system.


  1. Open any Office application, such as Word or Excel, and create a new document.

    Note: We use Word in the example below.

  2. Choose File in the top left corner, and then select either Account or Help from the list on the left.

  3. Under Product Information, you'll see your Office product name and, in some cases, the full version number.
