Hi, I'm new to Macs, having just purchased my first IMac today. I set up a number of users for each member of the family and then installed Office 2011. Unfortunately, Office is only showing under my User, which is the Admin User.

Is there any way of sharing Office across the other users. If so, please can somebody provide a step by step guide, as I am trying to find my way around having used Windows for 15 years.

Much Appreciated
QUOTE Thanks

Welcome to the Mac Forums.

I don't remember seeing an option to install MS Office 2011 for all users. Since you installed it under your admin account it will only be available to you. You could give all users admin rights but you might not want to do that.

A new iMac running Lion also complicates things somewhat because each user's library folder is hidden by default. And any support files and folders would have to be copied to each users library folder from your user account library folder.

The easiest way may be to just reinstall Office 2011 for each user. It will certainly be less complicated.
