Missing Office 2010 product key from New Inspiron 15 laptop

Jump to solution

Just bought a new Inspiron 15 laptop. Microsoft office 2010 is already installed on it but when I attempt to open it it asked for product key. No discs, cards ect with product key info for any software came with the laptop. How do I find out the product key? Thanks.

Did you buy Office 2010?  It's not standard - unless you paid extra for it, what's there is a trial version.

Oh really? i'm just getting used to this windows 8 app silliness. Because the app was already there, and when I clicked on it it had a tick next to "I already purchased office 2010 Activate" I thought It was part of the software that came with the laptop. I guess its just the trial version though..so makes sense.

Thanks for your help

It depends on the version and license type.  It can be purchased as a subscription service - or outright.  Pricing  here:
