  • Hello Tinashe,

      If your computer was supposed to come with a Full version of Office, then the Product Key for that copy of Office would be in the documentation that came with the computer. If it did not, please contact the retailer or the manufacturer of the computer.  However, please note that computers do not normally come with a Full version of Office, by default. The buyer must usually request (and pay extra) for the Office program.

     Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office.  If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program then the trial has reached the end of it's trial period.

      The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows Vista (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office.
