Thank you. In order to reinstall your MS Office that you have subscribed, you need to access your Microsoft account. Here are the steps:

  1. Open your web browser, it could be Safari, Chrome, or whatever you regularly use
  2. Then go to this link or URL:
    https://account.microsoft.com/
  3. On that page, click on Sign In with Microsoft
  4. On the login page, enter your email address that you used to create your Microsoft account. If you enter an email that is NOT registered with Microsoft, the page will tell you that the account is NOT existing. If you entered a correct email address, it will ask for your password. So if you have 5 email addresses that you use, you can try all of them.
  5. Once you entered a correct email address, it will ask for your password. Please enter your password ***** log in. If you forgot your password, reset it by clicking on Forgot Password ***** and follow the on screen procedures.
  6. Once you are able to login to your Microsoft account, please locate and click on Services and Subscription tab. There you shall see your subscribed MS Office software. Click on the INSTALL button there and then follow the on screen procedures.

I hope that helped.

Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!

If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Jess
