I have office 365 installed on my home PC and laptop. I pay Microsoft every month for the licence. However my work account allows me to install office on my own devices so I don't need to pay for something I am already entitled to. Is there a way I can switch between the two without having to do an uninstall/reinstall?
Yes you can do this. If you O365 account is enabled with the license. Simply sign out of your existing office and then sign in with your work account.
- Open a single Office App (Word, Excel, etc) and close the others.
- Click File to go to Stage area
- Click "Account' in left hand menu
- Under "User Information" click Sign Out.
- Restart the application then sign in with your work account.
There is a "switch account" option there - You can try that, but I have 100% success with the above method.
Now on your personal account you may want to sign into O365 and deactivate the license. If you are using the personal O365 subscription keep in mind that this also grants you storage for OneDrive personal and Skype minutes. If you use those don't cancel the subscription. If you don't - and all you used was Office, than it's probably worth canceling as you won't be using that feature.
