What are the prerequisites for Running Office 365 and Office 2016

Office 365:
Office 365 is designed to work with the latest browsers and versions of Office. If you use older browser versions that are not in mainstream support then the following issues may exist:

Microsoft won’t deliberately prevent you from connecting to the service, but the quality of your Office 365 experience will diminish over time.
Microsoft won’t provide code fixes to resolve non-security related problems.

Solution: Make sure your browser version is up to date. Recommend using Internet explorer/Edge, Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome.
