Your computer does not have to be connected to internet to access your installed Office 365 / Word 365 application. The documents which are saved on the computer can be accessed instantly, this includes the old and the new documents. Files created in the Office application can be either saved locally or on OneDrive.

Office 365 Home Office apps can be installed on up to six PCs or Macs, and six tablets. Office 365 Personal, which is relatively a newer option, offers access to the same apps and storage space as Office 365 Home, except you can only install it on one PC or Mac, and one tablet or iPad.
