O365 Home is good for up to 6 users. However, if I have two laptops, can I install the office suite and Onedrive on both of them and log in with the same ID? Will it let me use them both at the same time or will that cause any problems?
I doubt I'd really need to use Word or Excel at the same time on both but could I have Onedrive installed on both and if I add something on laptop 1, would it automatically sync over to laptop 2 if they are both being used at the same time?
Just trying to figure out the details of the 6 users and the multiple devices and how all that works together.

So can I create an account and install Office/Onedrive on my laptop and my wife's laptop and my phone, and everything all under just my account? Then we can use the other 5 accounts for our parents or siblings or something like that?

Yeah, I know everyone would have access to all the same files. I'm more just wondering if I *could* do it that way. Not that I actually would. I didn't know if I open Word on laptop 1 and then I open Word on laptop 2, would it see two active sessions and make one not work or something like that.

My question is similar. I have an Office 365 Home account currently with five active users of the six I am allowed. I am getting a second Windows laptop for myself to use at home. It will be under the same Microsoft Account, mine. Normally when I install on a new device it uses up an 'Install' on my Office 365 Account, but I was hoping that would not happen this time, and that it would count as a second device under me as a User. I'm a little unclear how this works.

Thank you for the response Adam
Just to dig down on that a little bit. When I login to my 365 Account to set up Office 365 on my new laptop, while logged into Windows with my Microsoft Account, will Setup recognize me and not add a sixth and last user/device to my account?

Sorry, I was not clear. I login to my new laptop for the first time with my existing Microsoft Account. I then login to the Microsoft Account website where it shows my Office 365 Account information, number of installs (there are currently 5) payment options, etc, Now I run Setup Office to this device. Will it add another User to the list or will it detect that it is me installing Office a second time on another device?

@adam deltinger I have , and pay for, excel 365, usually it won’t sync across from windows 10 to devices, like iPads, iPhones. No easy way to sync as googling sync is incorrect! Upgrading was a waste of money and frustrating…and Microsoft never answer ! Should just be a sync button. How easy would that me,
