About ten days ago I brought a new laptop, it did not come

Customer Question

About ten days ago I brought a new laptop, it did not come with Windows. I went to the Microsoft site and purchased Windows 8.1 for about $100 and I can't get the program to work. Am I missing something?

I'm trying to access excel
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, you need Microsoft Office not windows for this.

This you can purchase from my link below.

Windows is what runs your computer and this you already have. It is Office you require to open Excel documents and that you purchase from the link I gave you

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
