How to Create a Microsoft Account

The Microsoft Office Suite is an incredible tool, but not if you can’t get access to it.

If you want to be able to download Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or any of the other programs in the MS Office Suite, you’re going to need to set up a Microsoft Account.

This article will walk you through the process of doing just that.

Improved Computer Functionalities

While Google has been working on similar software such as Google Docs and Google Sheets, there’s just nothing quite like a pristine Microsoft Office Word doc or Excel program. Of course, you’ll have to settle for the former unless you make your own Microsoft Account.

It’s as Easy as One, Two, Three

Microsoft got its start by designing user-friendly interfaces for computers and hardware. It only makes sense that the Microsoft Account Set-up system would be just as easy.

Begin by going to and click on “sign-up now.” Once there, you’ll see a window with multiple text boxes including name, username, and password. Fill out all of the text boxes on that screen however you so desire and wallah! You’ve got your very own Microsoft account.

Yes, it really is that simple, but it is important to make sure that your information is correct and your password is strong enough to withstand scams and hacking attempts, otherwise your Microsoft account will quickly become somebody else’s Microsoft account.


Once you’ve secured your account against hacking attempts by reinforcing your password, you’re good to go! From here, you can begin customizing your account however best suits your needs.
