|Version of Microsoft Office|
|Support end||2023-10-10 (Mainstream)|
Microsoft Office 2019 is a version of Microsoft Office which was released to manufacturing on 24 July 2018, and became available to customers two months later on 24 September 2018. Officially, this version requires at least Windows 10, but it can be patched to run on older versions.
This version also changes the way on how long Microsoft will support the software; instead of 10 years that was on earlier versions of Microsoft Office, Office 2019 will only receive 5 years of mainstream support and 2 years of extended support, adding up to 7 years of support - 3 years less than usual.
It is the last version of Microsoft Office to have an extended support period as its successor Office 2021 is only supported for 5 years.
It includes all features which are currently available in Microsoft 365. There isn't any MSI version for client apps, only server apps have an MSI version.
This version ships with new fluent icons, which were later backported to Office 2016 version 19xx for Click-to-Run (C2R) installation. For the first time, the icon set is the same on all systems. To comply with the UI language of macOS Big Sur, all icons were put in a rounded square with an update released in 2020.
