• Where’s Outlook?


    Have had my new ASUS Zenbook with Win 10 Pro vers 20H2 build # 19042.1110 for a little over a month. D/l Office 13 and activated with no problem shortly after I got everything set up the way I wanted, Malwarebytes Premium and NordVPN. I use Outlook more than anything else and was cautiously happy with my new setup for about 3 weeks. Completed a full backup to an SD card I have and I started fine tuning trying to make sure I have everything enabled correctly. For reasons unknown to me I started observing unusual behavior, very slow loading of email, difficulty connecting to NordVPNs servers over a 3 or 4 day period. Did several full scans looking for malware or viruses and found nothing. Then I couldn’t connect to wi-fi. My laptop saw my wi-fI, as well as other ones close by but could not connect.  Everything else in the house was fine, wife’s Mac air, all of our phones, streaming Netflix, etc. I was stumped and just set it down and put it out of my mind for several days. Resolving to either fix the problem or take advantage of my vendors return policy I opted to wipe everything and reload from scratch. That got me back up and running. When I again downloaded Office 2013 from the same d/l site I used the month before everything was back except for Outlook. Hmm, so here I am. Hopefully someone here more knowledgeable than I has been through the same thing and can suggest helpful next steps. Did I miss something and Outlook in Office 2013 has been removed?

      There are some versions that do not include Outlook.  My guess is that you downloaded the Home and Student version which does not include it?

        Even though the version I originally bought was the full Pro copy I noticed when I d/l my copy after I started to rebuild this laptop it was now the “Home and Student” version. I’m sure the link that I have is for the H&S version.

        Any ideas to restore my full pro version?

      Hi gjacwel,

      Here is an link for Internet Archive search results for Office 2013 Pro:


      These were all uploaded to the Internet Archive by various people before Microsoft pulled them from the Digital River website. Some are x86 and some are x64. Some include Plus. It looks some include SP1 for Office 2013.

      The only version which will work is the correct version for your registration key for Office.

      You might consider getting Office365 since it is cheap for a yearly license, and since it periodically gets updated with security updates, bug fixes, and new features. At first I hated the ribbon bar. Yet after eventually getting used to it, I find that I can many things more efficiently.

      Best regards,

      Thanks GTP.

      That link is very useful. I’m considering Office365, but I’m also open to  Office Pro 2016 or 2019, too.

      As options present themselves I’ll update this thread, I’m sure that I’m not the only one looking at this.

        Update:   GTP’s link to the archive is spot on! Had just what I was looking for. I’m up and running.

        Thank you to both GTP & Susan. It’s your knowledge and effort that REALLY makes this website the special resource it is.
