Same Account For Mac

Same Account For Mac Rating: 5,0/5 8492 votes

Dear all, I have installed Microsoft Office 2011 on my IMac which I have recently bought. I did this on the (at that time) only user account in place: the administrator account.

Mar 22, 2015  Having two Macs, is it normal procedure to create the same OSX login account name for both machines (and choose a different computer name in the 'Sharing' preference pane when connected in a network), or a unique OSX login account for each machine?

I have Apple Match and iTunes w/Apple Music shared - Answered by a verified Mac Support Specialist We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our website.

A little time after this my wife and I decided it would be much easier to us to make an additional user account on the same computer for my wife (also with administrator rights), so we could have our own settings, desktop preferences etc. So now we have two user accounts/profiles on one Imac, so far so good. But when my wife signs in on her account, she is not able to use Microsoft Office 😐. Office seems to be only available to the user account on which it has been installed initially: 'my' account. Can anyone help us out here and tell us how we can make Office available to my wife's user account as well? I understand that the licence of Office is restricted to one computer, but what about two accounts on the same IMac?

I mean, it is still one computer, one 'home', one family etc. We would appreciate your help here! Kind regards, Jurjen. As long as you installed MS Office into its default location (the top level /Applications folder) it will be available to all user accounts on the Mac.

As far as licensing is concerned you only have to enter the license code once, which you should do right after installing MS Office, in the same admin account you installed it from, by opening any one of the MS Office applications. There is no additional licensing required for additional user accounts on the same Mac. Each user account is able to run the Office apps. The only thing you will have to do is go through an initial setup screen in each user account (but this setup does NOT involve entering any additional license codes). You may have problems if you installed MS Office in a particular user account (i.e. NOT in the top level /Applications folder).

I just created a second user on my mac and then opened word, excel and powerpoint without any problems. I did have to go through some initial setup screen for the new user but that was just to place files referencing the new user name in that users user folder. MS does not require a license for each user account on the same computer.

The software license is tied to the machine not to any one specific user or user account. So I'm not sure what Kappy is referring to. Since Office 2011 for mac is installed into the Applications folder that is on the root of the drive all you have to do is open that Applications folder in Finder and then Drag the program icons to the Dock and that will place a icon in the dock for that user. Then just open them. The MS Office apps are located in a folder called Microsoft Office 2011.
