Customer Question
Can I make a...

Can I make a one-time purchase of Office for ongoing use without taking an annual subscription?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

I have 2 Dell desktops, one brand new, and 2 Delll Inspiron laptops that are a year old. All have windows 10.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Inspiron? What have you tried so far?

I have one in use for nearly a year, the other does not have Office installed. One desktop is several years old and has office 2016. The 2nd desktop, installed yesterday, has not activated an Office, but needs it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Can I buy permanent Office installations that do not require an annual subscription?

Hello, and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you today.

You may purchase and install OFFICE 2016 for a one-time fee using the following link:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/d/office-home-student-2016-for-pc/cfq7ttc0k5fc?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

Purchasing OFFICE 2016 will permanently activate it for the one-time fee, while OFFICE 365 comes with a monthly/yearly subscription instead.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
