How Do I Buy Microsoft Office For My Laptop [WORK]

Go to and sign in with an existing or new Microsoft account and then enter your product key to redeem it*. Redeeming your key is what adds your Microsoft account to Microsoft 365 and you only have to do this once. If you're renewing a Microsoft 365 subscription with a new product key, use the same Microsoft account you previously associated with your expired version subscription.

To change from a 32-bit version to a 64-bit version or vice versa, you need to uninstall Microsoft 365 first (including any stand-alone Microsoft 365 apps you have such as Project of Visio). Once the uninstall is complete, sign in again to and select Other install options, choose the language and version you want (64 or 32-bit), and then select Install. (See Install Visio or Install Project if you need to reinstall those stand-alone apps.)

For an Office for home product, go to and create a new Microsoft account or sign in with an existing one, then follow the remaining steps on that page such as entering your product key (if you have one).

Select the PC or Mac tabs above to help you with the rest of the install process.

If you're trying to sign in with your work or school account to and your sign in is blocked, it likely means your Microsoft 365 administrator set up a security policy that's preventing you from signing in to that location.

Not all versions of Microsoft 365 include a key, but if yours did, you need to redeem it before you can install Microsoft 365. Go to and sign in with an existing Microsoft account or create a new one, then enter your product key. Follow the remaining prompts to finish linking your Microsoft account with this version of Microsoft 365.

If you bought a stand-alone version of an Microsoft 365 app, for example Visio or Word, in most cases you install this app in the same way you install the Microsoft 365 suite, by signing in to with your Microsoft account, or work or school account and selecting Install for your stand-alone product.

Microsoft Office remains the gold standard of office applications, but a Microsoft Office license can cost a fortune. One year after its release, Microsoft Office 2021 Home & Business still retails for just under $250 for a single PC license.

Microsoft Office rarely comes bundled with a new desktop or laptop. Unless it is a specific introductory deal, you'll be purchasing Microsoft Office as an add-on. And if you're building your own PC, well, you're straight out of luck.

"I have MS Office Professional 2013 running on my laptop. And I have bought a new one and I would like to move the application to the new laptop. Is it possible to transfer Microsoft Office to a new computer? How Do I transfer my MS Office 2013 with or without product key to the new computer?"

It has MS office 2002 installed and I have been using MS Office 2002 to do some calculation and typing stuff, like sum of inventory cost, copying some useful news from Google News.Until recently, I found that my laptop's MS office version might be too old to recognize an external excel file of MS Office 2010, because the laptop's MS Excel told me the new Excel file could not be opened.

So, I am going to spend a few hundred dollars to buy a genuine copy of MS Office 2010 (Some guy of the PC store nearby told me the price). But, before I do it, I would like to ask if it is OK to install another MS Office in my laptop.

If you have existing shortcuts in Quick Launch, on your desktop, in your start menu etc. etc. you will need to double check what version of the office apps they launch after the newer version is installed.

It will overwrite the files that are currently on it. However, if you install it onto another disk, such as a D:\ (if you have separate disks)it should be fine. I do believe that Office 2010 supports file of 1997-2003 versions of office. I am running Office16, and have opened 1 2003 file.

Normally retailing for $999, the Surface Laptop(Opens in a new tab) features the power of a laptop with the mobility of a sleek and detachable tablet. The hybrid lives inside an all-in-one lightweight housing with a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display and a speedy Intel 7th Generation Core i5 and 8GB of memory. It also features 128GB of storage for music, video, documents, and media, while the laptop runs Windows 10 with Office 365, OneDrive, Skype, and more ready to go straight from the box.

"I really needed a laptop but I was tired of the older, heavier models. I also did not want a tablet but a fully functioning PC. The new Surface laptop is fast, lightweight, has a touch screen, and comes with Windows 10. I also like the face recognition feature. I have to remember to log in at work and not just sit in front of my work laptop waiting for it to recognize me! I really love this laptop!"

You can still trim the cost of any laptop you're considering. This week I've got some tips on how to save money on productivity suites such as Microsoft Office, which can add up to $350 to your laptop's price tag.

In essence, there are two versions of Office: OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and retail. If you bought Office preinstalled on a laptop or desktop, you have an OEM version. Conversely, a retail version of Office is sold independently; you'd buy it through outlets such as or any software store.

However, you can legally install a retail version of Office on your primary machine--a desktop, for example--and a secondary computer as well, say your laptop. The end-user licensing agreement for a retail version of Office 2007 states "you may install another copy" of the retail version of Office "on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device." In other words, as long as you're installing Office on your laptop and not someone else's, and you're going to be the only user of Office, you're good to go.

Given the licensing restrictions on an OEM version, it may make sense to buy a retail version of Office and install it yourself. This is a good idea if you need to use the software on a desktop and a laptop, or you might want to install it on a second laptop later. If you shop carefully, you can pay about the same for the retail version as you would adding an OEM version to your new laptop. For instance, the retail version of Microsoft Office 2007 Small Business Edition was recently available for $260 to $420 online. Comparatively, adding Small Business Edition to the laptop I configured on HP's site cost an additional $249.

Keep in mind that if you didn't have Office preinstalled on your laptop and you run into problems later, your laptop maker's tech support may not help you. They may tell you they can't troubleshoot the problem because you didn't buy Office from them. If this is a serious concern for you, having Office preinstalled on your new laptop may be the way to go. If your computer maker sells the retail Office versions, you might get around the tech-support limitations by buying it from them. However, a spot check of retail versions of Office Small Business Edition on and found prices of $420 and $405, respectively--significantly higher than many other online store.

The Wrap-UpIf you're trying to cut your laptop costs, I'd recommend at least experimenting with Google Docs, Zoho,, or any other free productivity suite. You've got nothing to lose, and you'll be able to open in Office any files you create using one of its alternatives. You might save as much as $350--and discover that you don't miss Office so much, after all.Stop Cell Phone Spam: Are you receiving unwanted text messages, e-mail, and voice calls on your mobile phone?
