    Free office apps?

    Hi there,

    I have installed w10 few days ago. I wanted to try the new office apps. As it's said they are free for tablets 10.1 inch and less. When I installed them, I was asked for a 365 subscription to use more than the read mode. I've found more people with the same problem on asus tablets.

    I've seen there is a new bios update for T100TAM which says:

    "BIOS 205
    Change panel size from 10.4" to 10.1" in VBIOS"

    Notebooks & Ultrabooks | ASUS Transformer Book T100TAM | ASUS USA

    I wonder if my T100TA, with the latest bios 313, has the same settings in VBIOS and if there is any way to change it. I've already contact ASUS Spain but I haven't got any answer yet. I'll keep you updated.

    Any thoughts about that? Is anyone able to use those apps without a 365 account?

    I have wasted more time chasing ways to use MS Office on my various devices for little or nothing than I care to discuss! It finally sunk in that LibreOffice is free, does all I ever needed an office app to do, and works cross platform! I have it on my iMac, my MacMini, a Windows 7 laptop, a laptop running Ubuntu, and my TF 101 android tablet! Home | LibreOffice - Free Office Suite - Fun Project - Fantastic People

    If you had a 30 day Office free trial and had installed it under Win 8.1 on your device but never paid for it, that used your 30 day free trial. Upgrading to Win10 will not give you a fresh start free pass on another 30 day trial. That's why you get a hobbled version. Time to pay up if you want a fully functional Office install.

    Maybe you should update the bios, I guess if it has a panel size bigger thant 10.1 you can't use the free office mobile apps. If that update corrects that, you could use them free.
    I installed the office mobile apps on mine (T100TA) and all are working great, and I don't have an Office 365 subscription. I've been able to install the Office 2013 bundled with my transformer onto my laptop because the free Office apps suit my needs on the transformer.

    I've never used an Office free trial and I am not under the trial right now. The office mobile apps are free for core editing and creating on devices 10.1 inch and less. The point is that I can only use read mode as if my T100TA is bigger.

    I also have a T100TA with bios 313 like you. Are you able to create and edit documents? I can just read them!

    My T100TA came with free "Office Home & Student 2013", so yes of course that has worked for me for the nearly two years I've had my T100TA. And since I did a Win8.1 to Win10 upgrade selecting to "keep files, apps, etc." my Office install carried over into Win10 without doing anything.

    Hey oscaruru, if you don't mind, please update your profile and set your tablet to "TF Book T100TA". That makes it easy to see what your device you have.

    My Office Home & Student 2013 works well but what I mean is the new office mobile apps that you can download for free on the windows store. https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9WZDNCRFJB9S

    They are free for core editing and creating on devices 10.1 inch or less. On bigger devices, a 365 subscription is necessary for editing and creating. Though read mode is available for free even on bigger devices.
    You should try these apps on your T100 as they are touch friendly.

    Sorry... in text conversations, the true intent can be completely missed or misconstrued. Now two days later I have a complete understanding of what you were asking. I'll check into what you've said.

    I can create and edit documents in word and excel without an Office 365 subscription.

    I hope you can find an answer to your issue.
