Download Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer (Frontpage) Free

UPDATE: The new versions SharePoint Designer 2010 and 2013 are also available free for download.

Now that's a brilliant news. Microsoft has made the SharePoint Designer (SPD) (previously known as Microsoft Frontpage) FREE. So you can download it and use it without spending any bucks.

SharePoint Designer is a great tool for website development. Its a WYSIWYG HTML editor and Website administrator tool from Microsoft. It provides the powerful tools you need to deliver compelling and attractive SharePoint sites and quickly build workflow-enabled applications and reporting tools on the SharePoint platform, all in an IT-managed environment.

According to Microsoft, SharePoint Designer 2007 is not compatible with SharePoint 2010. To connect to SharePoint 2010 sites you must use SharePoint Designer 2010. If using both the 2007 and 2010 versions of SharePoint Designer simultaneously on the same computer you must install 32-bit versions. Also, it is recommended that you install SharePoint Designer 2007 before SharePoint Designer 2010.

You can watch the following Q&A video to learn more:

Supported Operating Systems are Windows XP and later.

So don't waste your time and grab your FREE copy from following link:

Download Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2007

Download Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (32-bit)

Download Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (64-bit)

Download Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2013

You'll need to register before downloading the free copy.

  • i was really missing Microsoft picture manager tools, thanks for helping me to install it back

  • work nice... thanks a bunch

  • Thank you so much for this! I use picture manager a dozen times a week and I was furious that it was eliminated from Office 2013! MS Photo Gallery is useless as are all their other photo programs. What a terrible decision on the part of MS, and how great of you to post the tutorial and link to get it back. You saved my life!

  • I take and post photos for the Sertoma club I am in and at other times for posting and like using Picture Manager as a quick way to crop, resize etc. for posting.
    Thank you very much for posting this.

  • I could not make this work. I'm a total Luddite, but, it sounds as if I should be able to do this. I cannot find the screens shown in the post.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.


  • thnk u so mch...

  • I installed sharepoint from the Microsoft site link you have given. But it is saying the edting will be online or something. Can I not do it offline. Microsoft has given link for Windows live photo gallery but there is nothing on their link. Please let me know how to use picture manager on Office 2013.

  • Thank you so much for this information. I edit ALOT of photos via 2010 and when I upgraded my computer and went to edit photos I was devastated not to be able to use this tool...

    Upgrade went perfectly. I am very very happy. Thanks again

  • Simply awesome! Many thanks and God bless! You have no idea.

  • Mate, you are an absolute life-saver!! Thanks a Gazillion!!

  • I'm with Gaurav above. I downloaded the link you gave, but now I have a Share Point Site home page that doesn't follow your screenshots. I needed to download the picture manager - I use it ALOT. I work at a University that auto-updates our office versions, but I can't access their "website" to download or run a web-platform program.

  • Thank you so much! I'm a big fan of this little tool.

  • July 2015, the links still work and the installation of Picture Manager was easy, thanks Chris you are a lifesaver!

  • wow! great work! It's a great help! Yeah @Andrew A life saver! :D XD

  • Hello, Can You tell me, why I cannot try to learn to do a website in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 with some of my excel- and word files I have in my FrontPage 2003 and SharePoint Designer 2007. They are both compatible to each other. I will try to do a website in SharePoint Designer 2010 and begin with an empty website. It does not function, I get an answer about Windows server or Microsoft foundation. What do I wrong, what is wrong? Can You tell me? Please !

  • Hello again, I forgotten that I have both 32-bits program Microsoft SharePoint Designer.
    Marianne again

  • As with others above, I have been so annoyed to have lost Picture Manager. I used it every time I wanted to edit photos. It's been such a nuisance! It just doesn't make sense that Microsoft would remove such a useful program.

    Thank you so much for helping out.

  • Thank you very much. I was missing picture manager so much. Installed it sept 2015

  • I have downloaded and need to see, which version will work on my pc.

  • Thanks VG, been looking for trick for Office 2016.

  • Picture Manager.
    What a support and help to get I installed in 2013.
    Thanks a lot VG.
    Best regards

  • worked like a dream! used the 32 bit even though my computer is 64 bit because there is some compatibility issue but my picture opening now defaults automatically with this great little picture editor.

  • Thank you SO much for this information! Our university is forcing all of us to upgrade to Office 2013 (boo!) and I suddenly realized my beloved Picture Manager was gone.

    I'm saving this information in case I have to reinstall here at work, or upgrade to Office 2013 at home.

  • Thanks a million. Worked perfectly first time. Choose 2007 version as download. Really glad I've got this program back all thanks to you.

  • really needed this for work and it worked first time thanks a million

  • Thank you! I really appreciate this!! Love having Picture Manager back again.

  • Thank you very much! I downloaded, installed and works great!

  • Like others, I was a devotee of MPM, because I could resize pix. The Windows 10 functionality is useless.
    Your Sharepoint Designer 2010 seems like the perfect answer (I was going to download the 64-bit version?--Does that make the most sense?), but every time I try, I receive this message:
    Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later.

    I have gone to my Account Settings screen and, as far as I can tell, I AM signed in. Thoughts?

  • Thank you! This worked--instructions were great.

  • This is CRAZY!!!! I can't believe Microsoft got rid of the Picture Manager!!!!!!!! I used it DAILY in my classroom!!!! I am totally devastated!! We just upgraded our computers to Office 2016, and I am praying that I can get this upload to work!!!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK, Microsoft!!
