I have Office for Mac 2011. Microsoft: “..Office for Mac 2011 will no longer be supported after October 10, 2017. This means that if you have a one-time purchase of an older version of Office or an existing Office 365 subscription, you'll want to think about upgrading to Office 2016.”
Office 2019 / 2016 for Mac. All versions of Office for Mac that have current support (currently Office 2016 and later) get: updates to fix bugs in the software; patches to stop security bugs that might allow access to your computer. Microsoft Office documents are far and away the most common way computers are infected, so fixing security bugs. Microsoft Office 2016 (codenamed Office 16) is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, succeeding both Office 2013 and Office for Mac 2011, and preceding Office 2019 for both platforms. It was released on macOS on July 9, 2015 and on Microsoft Windows on.
Office 2019 for Mac was launched in September 2018 as an update to Office 2016 for Mac. However, some of the new features had already been available as part of the then-called Office 365 subscription. Download the Install. Once you download the 2.6GB file to your downloads folder, click on the Office.
I have thousands of Word 2011 documents. If I keep Office for Mac 2011, am I in danger of having them all become corrupt? I’ve been reading lots of complaints hate Office 2016 - takes up lots of hard drive space, slow, etc. Suggestions? Thanks.

Microsoft has put out the free download of Office 2016 for Mac public preview, without any Office 365 subscription required. The new software includes support for Retina displays, iCloud syncing, and looks like the versions of Office currently available on Windows and mobile.
You can begin the free download here.
Once you download the 2.6GB file to your downloads folder, click on the Office Preview Package to get started. You will be guided through the necessary steps to install this software.
Tip: I had to upgrade my OS X because you can't install Office for Mac with any version of OS X below 10.10. To see my tutorial on how to upgrade your OS X go here.
I also had some internet interruptions on my initial download to my downloads folder and had a hard time opening the package because it did not download the full 2.6GB. Make sure that you fully downloaded the package.
The software license agreement comes in many languages, this one in English. Once you read the agreement, you will have scrolled to the bottom. Click continue to agree.
You will then be prompted to agree. Once you do you will select what users of your computer will have access to the software to select the destination for install. You will need 5.62GB of free space to install. Select and click continue.
I want all users of my computer to be able to access Office and made sure to have the available space. Now I am ready to install. I click install. I had to wait a few moments for the installation to complete. Then I was notified that the installation was successful. And my installation is complete.
