Just a few days ago, Microsoft officially decided to make its Office application components available as separate product listings in the Microsoft Online Store. This decision means that if users do not need the entire Office suite, they can choose to download Word, Excel or PowerPoint as individual applications through the Microsoft Online Store, giving them much more freedom of choice.

On January 1, some users had already noticed that Microsoft applications had been changed in Windows 11, but most of them still did not have the corresponding installation options. This likely represents Microsoft's ongoing promotion efforts, and Microsoft is expected to officially announce this news to the public at a later date.

It's worth noting that in addition to the option to install Office applications, the Microsoft Online Store is slowly becoming the store of choice for anyone who wants to install applications in a convenient and straightforward way on Windows 11.

The Microsoft Store now allows third-party browsers to use their own engines, a change that has been warmly welcomed by other companies in the market, including Mozilla and Opera, who have even launched their browser applications on the Microsoft Store.

Interested consumers can search the Microsoft Online Store for Windows 11 devices by using their acronyms (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) to find the new Microsoft Office standalone applications that correspond to their needs for installation.
