How to Activate Microsoft Office 2016 with a Product Key
Microsoft Office 2016 is a popular productivity suite that includes applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. If you have purchased Office 2016 as a one-time purchase, you will need a product key to activate it on your PC or Mac. A product key is a 25-character code that you can find on the back of your Office package or in your email receipt. In this article, we will show you how to activate Office 2016 with a product key in simple steps.
Step 1: Find your product key
The first step is to locate your product key. Depending on how you bought Office 2016, you can find it in different places:
If you bought Office 2016 from a physical store, look for the product key card inside the package. You may need to scratch off the silver coating to reveal the code.
If you bought Office 2016 online from Microsoft or another retailer, check your email for a confirmation message that contains the product key. You may need to check your spam or junk folder as well.
If you bought Office 2016 through your employer's Workplace Discount Program, go to https://microsoft365.com/setupbusiness and enter your work email address and password. You will see your product key on the screen.
If you bought a new PC or Mac that came with Office 2016 pre-installed, look for a sticker on the device that has the product key. You may need to activate Windows or macOS first before you can activate Office.
If you have lost or misplaced your product key, you can try to contact Microsoft support or the retailer where you bought Office 2016. However, there is no guarantee that they can help you recover it.
Step 2: Enter your product key
The next step is to enter your product key on the Office activation website. Follow these steps:
Go to https://setup.office.com/ and sign in with your Microsoft account. If you don't have one, you can create one for free.
Enter your product key without hyphens and click Next.
Select your country or region and language and click Next.
Review your subscription details and click Next.
You will see a confirmation message that says \"You're all set!\" This means that your Office 2016 is activated and linked to your Microsoft account.
Step 3: Install Office 2016
The final step is to install Office 2016 on your device. Follow these steps:
On the confirmation page, click Install.
You will be redirected to https://account.microsoft.com/services/, where you can see all the Office products that you own.
Click Install again next to Office 2016.
A download file will start automatically. Depending on your browser, select Run (in Edge or Internet Explorer), Setup (in Chrome), or Save File (in Firefox).
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation process.
Once the installation is finished, you can launch any of the Office applications and sign in with your Microsoft account to access all the features.
