    To begin with, we need to open our web browser.
    In this tutorial, the Google Chrome browser is used.

  3. 3
    We press the "Enter" key on the keyboard.
    We'll be taken to the Microsoft Office portal page, where we'll clearly see "Office 365" on top. We'll be given the option to sign in with our work or school account. Each of the input fields will initially appear as yellow on some browsers like Google Chrome. However, once we fill in our data, they'll become white. In this case, a work account is used.

    We can click "Keep me signed in".
    It means that the next time we go to the web site, we won't have to sign in. We'll be simply able to click our account and go directly into it.

    In the event we try to sign in but are unable to, we should view a VisiHow tutorial on what to do if we cannot access our account, where we explain each of the steps to go through to access the account out of which you are currently locked out or into which you cannot get.

    To proceed, we click "Sign in".
    Once we click "Sign in", we'll be on the main Office portal page. To confirm that, we can check the web address field of the browser, where it should say "https://portal.office.com/Home". There are several places where we can go to from this page.

Questions and Answers

What do I type for the username?

I know to write my name but what do I write after it. I have tried: @kyschools.ktu.us

The mail server part (the text after "@") matches the one from the email address that you check. If you have not set up your Microsoft account, then use our tutorial on how to set it up.
