Microsoft Office for the Mac is a suite of tools that can boost productivity in your small business. The Office suite includes a word processor, Word; a spreadsheet application, Excel; presentation software, PowerPoint; and email software, Outlook. All of these applications are designed to work well together, so you can share data between them or link files for automatic updating. The Mac version of Office also plays nicely with the Windows version and you can exchange files with Windows Microsoft Office users without resorting to file conversion.

1 Insert the Microsoft Office for Mac CD into your computer and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software on your Macintosh.

2 Open the "Applications" folder located at the root level your Macintosh hard drive. The Office software sits inside the Microsoft Office folder. This folder will include a year, such as 2011, that indicates the version of the software installed.

3 Open the "Microsoft Office" folder to see the individual applications that make up the Office suite of products.

4 Double-click on the Microsoft Office program you want to run.
