Where is your download?
by Kirkwood57106 / June 10, 2013 4:16 PM PDT

If you downloaded the Mac version of MS Office, there should be 2 folders on the bar that has icons on it documents and downloads folder. If not open the Macintosh HD icon on your screen, click on it again in the drop down menu, and then click on Applications. Scroll down to MS Office. I have a Mac Pro --- assume you have the Intel OS also. Hope this helps. It is a hit and miss answer if you don't post which Mac you have and the OS you are using in it.

Thanks for the help.
That last one from Kirkwood 57106 has hit the nail on the head.
I can now log on to work(is that good or bad?).
I will remember to add my OS and machine next time I need help.

Thanks everyone

What you need to do is try not to think like a PC, and it will be easier to learn Mac.
You will love them. Have had my Mac Pro since 2006 or 2007, and have never had a
problem until recently. I see they have gone through the Cats, and now starting on
Mavricks (horse or cowboy?) so it looks like it is getting close to taking it in for Tune up
and maybe up my RAM, and stuff. Wink Never regretting the switch no matter what the
PC people say.

PC V Mac

I must admit after only 2 weeks of using a Mac I wonder why I didn't do it years ago.
So much quicker and more fun.
Now the office need to catch up with me for a change.
