Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to install Microsoft Office Outlook. Outlook is part of the Microsoft Office software suite, but can be installed with other programs or completely by itself. It's basically an expansion of Outlook Express, which is the email program included in Windows. And Outlook is just the same program, pretty much, except with a few more functions and a bit more complicated in a way. Once you've inserted your Microsoft Office disk, the installation will launch by itself. The first step is to enter your 25-character product key. You can either do this right away or you can skip this step by entering nothing at all, and then you'll be prompted to enter it the first time you use an Office program. Then you'll be prompted to accept the terms of the software license. Just check the box and then click continue. Then select the customize option. If you go to the installation options tab, you'll be able to select which programs you'd like to install from the Office suite. Here, you can either only select Outlook or you can select any other programs as well that you'd like to install. If you leave the defaults, Outlook will be installed as well. In our scenario, let's say we want to only install Outlook. We should click on the arrow on the top of Microsoft Office and then select Installed on First Use. Then we can go to each individual program and select Not Available from the drop-down menu. When we get to Outlook, however, instead of selecting Not Available, we'll want to select Run from My Computer. Once we've selected all these options, we can just click on the continue or upgrade button, depending if you have a previous version of Office installed, to start the installation.
