1 Answer

Mirosoft Office I just got a laptop from a friend, it has microsoft xp. but it doesn't have the office part of it, do I have to but the whole $100+ xp program all over again, or is there a way tha I can just get word, publister, power point...etc...? I really hate using notepad for everything! it's so boring, and not everyone has it so if you need to work on a file from work to home or vise versa it's rediculous.

Hello there.

If you haven't got your own licensed copy of Microsoft Office then yes you would have to pay for installing it on your laptop.

An alternative would be to use a free office application suite, i use openoffice which you can download from here , for free, with no adverts or trials.

This may be enough to cover your needs, but if you need MMS Office you would have to purchase it sorry!

Hope this helps.

I need a 25 cheat code for microsoft word

Nearly all version of Microsoft Office need to pay for the code to activate your downloaded office.
Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is a cut-down version of the package which displays ads, and only contains limited functions. But by way of compensation you can use it free of charge and without a code.
You can also try Kingsoft Office which does the same work as MS Office, and supports most MS file formats. The word processor in this suite can open, edit and save as(doc, docx and etc) files, and the similar MS interface to you.

Hey guys... Is anyone has 2010 microsoft Office Suite for windows 7..plase

The only way to legally attain Microsoft Office 2010 is to purchase it.

Alternatively, you could try an Office substitute, and free, open source project called Open Office.

It is downloadable at

It will allow you to create and edit word, powerpoint, excel, access, or publisher files.

It will work with Windows 7.

It is not made by Microsoft. But it is a good substitue for office, and it doesn't cost upwards ofr $100 dollars. (Free. Free is the price).

Dear sir , i have downloaded mirosoft word viewer 2003 in my windows 7 and iam unable to print the screen shots in that and write in that. iam able to view the documents. why

Microsoft Word Viewer is only a "Viewer" and is only able to view word documents.
Alternative actions such as editing is prohibited unless you buy the full version of Microsoft Word (comes in the Microsoft Office Suite).
You can find Microsoft Office here:

How can i install a free mirosoft office from the internet?

Here's a link from where you can buy and download MS Office 2010. Here is a link to the trial version. After download just run the installer to install MS Office suite, and follow the steps in the installer.

Alternatively, you can use Open Office, it's free and as good as MS Office.

Where can i find a site in net about free download of microsoft word.

You can either use the Open Office (here is the link) that is free and fully compatible with the whole Microsoft Office suite (including Word), or use the freeware Microsoft Word Viewer (here is the link for you to download) but keep in mind that this one can only view, print and copy; that's why it is called "word viewer". I definitely suggest you the first solution.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Fixya is not the proper source for this information. You need to call Microsoft as they are the generators of those product keys.
