  1. Office 365 home, freeing up an installation


    we have office 365 home. I know you can install it on 5 different machines. Currently we have it on two machines. One of which I am thinking of selling. So if I uninstall office on this machine will that free up a slot or is the fact I installed it forever linked and I won't get that slot back? Hope that makes sense.

    With this his in mind what is the best way to de-register a PC with office 365. Through the add/remove programs uninstaller or is there a better way?

    thanks,
    Wayne

    Lumia 735 and Activating Office 365 Personal one year subscription

    Hi,

    Receiving email is not the problem. My Microsoft account is working fine on the phone. Also I can see that Office is installed on the phone.

    I know that I can use the Office Suite on the phone, but how would I edit them on my home PC without the full Office 365 experience?

    The question is for Office 365. There is an option to 'set up' this on the phone and this fails.

    Given that the offer with the phone is for one year Office 365 Personal, I would also expect to be able to download and use the office platform on my home PC - i.e. the whole point of Office 365.

    So, back to my original question - how do I activate my one year Office 365 Personal, that came with the purchase of the phone?

    Regards

    Dom

    You can deactivate an install of Office 365 from your 'My Office Account' online and then uninstall it from your PC in the normal way via Control Panel.

    Sheltieuk is correct. If you deactivate Office 365 on the computer you free up that slot. If You do sell the computer make sure to securely delete any personal info. I use a program called Eraser. What I would do is remove the HDD and connect it to your other computer. Then I would erase the entire HDD. Be carefull not to erase anything on the HDD with the operating OS. Then I would install the HDD back into the computer and do a clean install of Windows 10 with out activating or accessing your MS account.
