Hello, I just got a new laptop for my birthday. We purchased it from Best Buy. To activate Office 365/ Microsoft Word, it says we must activate it by using a product key. However, we dont know where the product key is. It says it is 25 digits long. We have tried the serial number on the receipt but that didnt work.

Thank you so much in advance
What do you know, it was hidden under a slap of the box. Thanks everyone. Thank God I did not throw it away.

Best Answer:

brayden: IF you paid extra for Microsoft Office, then the license (which is the product key) would be inside a special envelope in your laptop's packaging. There will be a label on the envelope to let you know what it is.

If it's just a laptop you purchased w/out paying extra, then you are looking at the free trial and you have no license (product key) to enter. THe free trial is only for 30 days and not worth the time or effort unless you just need Office for 30 days. After 30 days passes, the software literally locks down and won't allow you to use it unless you buy it.

Getting back to your copy….if it's one you purchased, then using the envelope that contains your license (product key) that I described above, go to this link to set it (Office 365) up https://products.office.com/en-us/downlo…

My product key is on a sticker on the bottom of my laptop. The sticker says, "Microsoft", and "Windows" on it. Before you jump though all those hoops, look in your programs list for "Office Starter…" and try that out. It's free and contains most of "office". I also suggest downloading an antivirus program as soon as possible. I got AVG free antivirus throough the site "Ninite.com", which is very clean and dependable. See which other apps it has that you like or need. There are other sites with fake anti virus that will screw you up real bad. The internet is a very bad neighborhood. I really love "ccleaner" from "pirifofrm.com". It is a very good application for quickly cleaning temp files and registry errors without risking the computer. It's also good for uninstalling unwanted programs and their unneeded registry keys. New windows computers often contain tons of "bloatware" that wastes space, time and memory. CCleaner made getting rid of that trash a snap.

You've only got a trial version of the software. You'll be provided with the product key when you actually buy Office or Word.

Please remain calm. First off we all know your perfect and you will figure it out. The product key is usually found within the CD case manual. If you don't find it call best buy and they will direct you to a branch called the Geek squad who will alleviate any concerns you have. Remember you are perfect.
ELfaGeek:
Call or go into the Best Buy store where you bought it, and they can enter the code to Activate Office 365.

That is, if it's not a 30 or 60 day OFFICE 365 TRIAL VERSION.

You have to purchase office online. You can get a trial version.
