Default Free MS Office

Is there anyone here who knows where I can download MS Office for my HP Pav. I cannot do my freelance job since this laptop doesn't have an MS Application that is installed. Is it possible for me to copy the one from my desktop or Acer laptop? How will I be able to do that? Thanks in advance.

You can download any version of office you have licens to by typing the key in to the verifier on this site:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...ownload/office

There are different types of licens though.
If it came preinstalled on your laptop, then you have a OEM licens.
That licens can not be transferred.

If you have a retail licens, you should be able to just uninstall it from the old computer and reinstalled it on the new one.

If you don't know what your licens key is, you can find it with this program: https://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

You mean free of charge to use? Not sure where to find that so I suggest a free alternative like LibreOffice or Open Office. I use them I don't have a MS Office.

Try to avoid using licensed software on more than one computer. Typically if both run at the same time you might lose it. There could be other case scenarios to lose it but not sure how MS Office deals with that.

Yet another option is to use the on-line versions of MS Office. https://products.office.com/en-us/of...-office-online

Wow man, thanks for that suggestion. My sister was just now looking to open up .wps files and your suggestion of Libre Office did the trick.

It's mostly about update support and some features maybe. But both will do the trick. I've tried both and kept LibreOffice because of some websites claiming it had better update support and a better development team.
