Microsoft office is a paid-for application and downloading a pirated copy would be illegal. The best free option is openoffice it has all the applications of office and is free. You can download it from http://www.openoffice.org/ Hope this helps
If you have a legitimate, unused product key, you can generally download the trial-version of the software from Microsoft's site, install, launch the application, and search under the "About" menu
for an option to enter your product key.
Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I will be glad to assist.
In order to find Microsoft Word on your Mac notebook, you have to first know if you purchased a copy of Microsoft Office for Mac 2004 or 2008. If you have purchased either of these versions, then you just need to click on the Finder icon at the bottom left corner of the Dock to open up a new Finder window and then select the Applications folder and look for a Microsoft Office folder.
If you see that folder then you just need to open it and click on the Word icon within that folder.
If you do not locate such a folder, then chances are you may need to either reinstall the copy you have of Microsoft Office for Mac or purchase a copy of the software if you don't recall ever having purchased a copy of the software.
Microsoft Office for Mac is a 3rd party software that does not come fully installed on Macs except for a Trial version which will only remain active for 30 days unless the full version is purchased.
There are scores of downloadable word processing programs for the MACBOOKS that are free from CNET.com Google has online programs that emulate Microsoft office format as does Openoffice.org. I would suggest looking at them for no cost solutions, especially if you are going to print out hard copies of documents only or need to collaborate over the web.
However if you want compatible documents, or ones that are able to be shared with others possibly not on MAC platform, like professors on Windows, etc. then you will need to purchase Microsoft Office for MAC. Check with your school as well. If they are on the MAC platform many times the school will provide the software via an enterprise license agreement with Apple/Microsoft. If in the end you have to foot the bill for the program and load it physically, be sure and get the educator discount, it substantially cuts the cost. You can do a search at Microsoft.com or Apple.com for the online purchase options and use EDUCATOR or STUDENT as keywords.
well im sure everyone would love to hand you their $100+ cd key, but unfortunately its just not worth it, go to best buy right now and get barebones office for $80! its got word, powerpoint, and a couple others...
If Mac Office is installed, you can find your Mac Office by clicking on the hard drive, click on application folder then scroll down till you find it. Once you find it , open the folder , thenyou can drag Word,Excel,Entourage to your desktop and make an alias icon.
