You should refer to the System Requirements page for the prerequisites for installing LibreOffice on a Windows system. If you are a corporate or government user, you should consult the Implementation and migration information page.
It is not necessary to uninstall any previously installed version of LibreOffice. If you have an existing installation of LibreOffice, all your preferences will just be kept and that previous installation will be overwritten.
If you are not sure which version of Windows you have, press Win + Pause to open the system properties window. The LibreOffice Main Installer download page can be selected with a built-in help file for your language:
Click the green button with white writing that says "DOWNLOAD VERSION." If the download does not start automatically, click 'Save file'.
Click here Download Libreoffice
After downloading the file go to the folder where the main installer was downloaded and double click on the installer and it will begin to install.
After step 2, the installation wizard welcome dialog will open to inform you that the installation process is about to start. Click "Next>"
Another dialog box opens, allowing you to choose if you want a default installation or if you want to choose special locations and components. Initially, for normal users, the default installation works, later if you learn more about LibreOffice you will be able to make the changes that interest you most.
Custom installation allows changes to the features that are installed.
If you wish, in this section you can install the spelling dictionaries, hyphenation rules, thesauri and grammar checkers:
Click Expand Optional Components
Click Expand Dictionaries
For example, to install any language, make sure the chosen language is on the left of the image and "This feature will be installed on the local hard drive".
Once all required changes to the features have been completed, click “Next >”
Another dialog box opens, inviting you to choose whether to open Microsoft Office documents with LibreOffice. By default, this feature is not enabled. If you want LibreOffice to open Microsoft Office files (documents, spreadsheets, and presentations), put a check mark in the four check boxes.
If you do not have Microsoft Office installed, it would be convenient to check this option, so as long as they send you a document, even Microsoft Office, it will open without problems.
If you have Microsoft Office installed, you may or may not check it, you can leave it unchecked and the documents will continue to open as usual. In any case, you can always change these options back if you are not happy with the changes.
Click “Next >”
The next screen opens another dialog box asking if:
A shortcut to open LibreOffice should be placed on your desktop. The default option is to create a shortcut and the most recommended.
To load LibreOffice during system startup.
After your selection, press "Install".
If the User Account Control dialog shows, click “Yes” to continue the installation.
If you would like to use the built-in help, you will need to download and install the appropriate file.
