The collection of programs in Office Starter is Spartan, to say the least. You get Word Starter and Excel Starter, with a few extra tools. The PC maker is required to warn you that the Starter programs have “reduced functionality” and also include advertising.
Backstage view (which appears when you click File) has all the information and control over settings that you’ll find in the full Office editions, including yet another opportunity to purchase one of the full versions. Note the limitations are described much more kindly here than in the required disclosures from OEMs.
Look! It’s another Purchase button, with more details about what you’re missing. A noteworthy feature not found in full versions is the Take Office With You button, which installs Office Starter on a USB key that runs on any Windows PC.
