How to Install Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016 with Product Key Only

I ran into a small problem when I got around to installing Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016. I bought an activation key and was wondering how to install the programs. If you have the same question then follow along with my installation. First of all, you should know that the Home and Student version includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. This key is for use on one computer and does not include a disc. It’s great because there are no monthly fees and I got mine for less than a hundred dollars. When you open the package, on the left flap you’ll find the web address where you need to go for installation. It’s the one here that goes to office.com/myaccount. Packed neatly on the right is where you’ll find the product key printed on the back of the card on the right and you’ll need this handy for your installation. I didn’t have screen capture software on the computer I was using to bear with me on the following screen shots. So go to office.com/myaccount and enter your Microsoft Live uername and account.

If you don’t have one, I think you might need to set one up. The next page was where I got confused. However, I clicked on “Enter Your Product Key” and it’ll took me to the next step. This is where you’ll type in your 25 character pass key from the printed card or from an email if you bought the key code online. Then click Get Started. Choose your language and click Continue. Now all we have to do is click Install. Click Save File to download the installer to your computer. When it’s done, you’ll see this screen. Just click Close. So now find the file you just downloaded in your Downloads folder. When you’re there, double click on the file and it’ll start installing.

 

A window pops up so you can see the process as it goes along. You will be able to see when each program is done. This process is sped up in my video but it took about 10 minutes to finish. Each program icon fills in as it finishes the install. When it’s done, you’ll see this final window and you’re done! Click Close. You can find your new programs by clicking the Windows icon in the task bar and selecting All Programs. And now you have access to these great Microsoft Office programs for a one-time fee!
