By Matthew Burley

Microsoft Outlook is an email management program that offers a variety of organizational tools including a calendar, address book and task list. Outlook is popular both among individual users and businesses for the features it can add to standard email accounts. It can be purchased as standalone software or it can be downloaded from Microsoft's website. Once you have acquired a copy of the software and a product key, you can begin installing the program on your Windows 7 computer.

Insert your Microsoft Outlook installation disc into the disc drive on your computer, or double-click the downloaded installation file. If you see an "AutoPlay" pop-up window after inserting the disc, click "Run SETUP.EXE."

Step 2

Type your product key into the field in the center of the window, and then click "Continue."

Step 3

Check the box next to "I accept the terms of this agreement," and then click "Continue."

Step 4

Click "Upgrade" if you have a previous version of Outlook on your computer or click "Install" if you are installing the program for the first time.
