All you need is access to and licenses for the various apps and workloads in Microsoft 365. If you already have access to your organization's Microsoft 365 subscription but are still unable to work your way through a recipe, you may need to reach out to your IT department to grant you the appropriate licenses and/or access required to complete the steps in that recipe.
Alternatively, you can also sign up for a Microsoft 365 trial account here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/try. This will give you one month's free access to a newly created Microsoft 365 environment. This option is recommended for organizations or users that want to try the service first. You will need to enter your billing information first, but you can cancel the subscription at any time.
Another option is to sign up for the developer program by visiting https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/dev-program. This will provide you access to a Microsoft 365 environment containing all the workloads and apps, with fictitious user accounts, along with a lot of dummy test content. This environment has a 90-day validity, after which it is deleted unless it is renewed. The developer program provides a great opportunity to learn about Microsoft 365 and its entire suite of apps.
