Microsoft has improved the account settings in the latest Windows 11 preview build, a settings page that now lists Office subscriptions linked to the user's Microsoft 365 account.

The Windows Insider team started rolling out a new 'Your Microsoft account' settings page within Windows 11's Settings in October 2021.

The end goal is to provide users with all the information they need on their Microsoft accounts (such as Microsoft 365 subscriptions) from within the OS, eliminating the need to log into their account on the web.

"With this build, we're making it easier for you to view all supported Office perpetual products such as Office 2021 or Office 2019 associated with your account within Settings > Accounts," Microsoft's Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc said today.

"This update will allow you to view all supported Microsoft 365 Office products licensed to your account and you can view details about your product or install Office by clicking the 'View Details' button."

You can now access this info (previously only available on the Microsoft account management page) from Windows by going into Settings > Accounts.

The new feature has started rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel, who have installed Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25126.
