    Office 365 Home - multiple user/computer questions

    I have searched on this site as well as the Office 365 site and others but have not been able to get a straight answer on a couple of questions regarding whether I can setup Office 365 Home using multiple users accounts on multiple PC's. Here is my PC configuration and what I want to do:

    I have one Win10 desktop and two Win10 laptops. All are HP's with Intel i7 processors and plenty of memory and disk space available. I want to have two (2) user accounts, one for my wife and one for myself, so each of us have our own separate computer data folders as well as individual Outlook folders on each of the three PC's. My assumption is that this will allow either of us to be able to log-in to any of the computers to read our emails, work on documents etc., through the facilities of Office 365 and cloud storage. If this makes sense, can someone tell me, in simple terms, what the steps are to install and setup my PC's in such a configuration? I have already purchased an annual subscription to Office 365 Home.

    I am old, but quite computer literate as I've been in the computer business since the late 50's so this stuff doesn't bother me. I just need some guidance, and confirmation that what I am attempting to do, is possible.

    Thanks for any help!

    I believe if you setup Office on each pc under your Microsoft user account then it will be available to other users on each pc.

    When I initially installed Win10 using my Microsoft account I also created another account on the pc which is not any sort of Microsoft account... more or less a stand-alone account. The Office apps are available to my other account.

    Edit: I just ran Outlook on my secondary pc account and it initialized like it was the first time that it was being used. I was getting prompts to setup a new email account. So it looks like you should be able to share the Office products but still maintain your identity and privacy.
