HP PCs - Activate Microsoft Office in Windows 10

Microsoft Office is a collection of applications for personal and business productivity, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

Office comes preinstalled on many HP computers with Windows 10. After you purchase an HP computer with Windows 10, you can do the following:

  • Activate an Office 365 subscription or free trial.

  • Activate Office 2016 or 2013.

  • Install an older version of Office.

  • Buy Office from the Microsoft Store.

Office 365 and Office 2016 might activate automatically. Open the Office installer or application (Word, Excel), and then follow the on-screen prompts to activate Office.


NOTE: If you have any issues activating Office, copy and paste the following URL into your browser address bar: Download and install Reset MS Office AFO and AFOLB Settings – CPS (sp101905.exe), and then open any Office application to restart the activation process.

For more information about activating Office, see the Microsoft document Activate Office 365, Office 2016, or Office 2013 (in English).
