    Using my Office on a new computer


    I am running Windows 10 Home v20H2 Build 19042.685 as a Local account.

    Since November 2017 I have had MS Office Professional Plus 2016, v2011 (Build 13426.20404 Click-to-Run) Current Channel, installed and running as a Local account. It was a one-time purchase and not a subscription model so not signed-in to Microsoft Office.

    I still have the Office executable setup file I downloaded (and installed from) including the Product Key I used to verify it. The software is Activated and updates itself as needed.

    Q1 - My computer is now getting old and I am considering getting a new one but will I be able to install my Office software on the new computer using the same Setup executable and Key or is it locked to my existing computer?

    Q2 - If it is possible then what is the procedure? I do not want to uninstall it from my existing computer and then find I cant install it on my new computer.

    Thanks for any help.

    :)

    Excel Problem With Old Office 2010 on New Windows 10 Computer

    "The first step" of what?

    I suspect you are looking at an uninstall procedure for a trial Office 365 subscription so if you point us to the paragraph you are looking at somebody can sensibly suggest a way ahead. This might well be, as you suggest, using Control panel, Programs & features, <select the application>, right-click, Uninstall.
