Right when my new laptop, Lenovo, was functioning I clicked the left side bar thing and noticed that is had Microsoft office features a part of it and it works fine. I didn't buy Microsoft office though so I'm confused???
Pretty much all computers you buy from an OEM from the past 15 or so years come with trial versions of different software. A lot of computer techs call this "Bloatware" or "Crapware" since most people never use them and they just take up space.
MS Office is usually included by most OEMS as a trial. The trial is usually for 30 days and after that, you have to buy it or subscribe to it if you want to keep using it.
1. Your computer came with an Office license, so Lenovo installed it for you.
2. Lenovo installed a trial version of Office as a promotional deal. After the trial expires you can't use it unless you pay for a license.
Either Office was included in the price or you are looking at a free trial.
If you want to know, then open one of the programs (say Word for instance, it doesn't matter which). Then click File > Help > and if you see "activate product key" then it's a trial. If you don't see "activate product key" then it was included in the price of your laptop.
Some PCs include extra software…
You`ll receive a bill soon.
