    I had the old Word 2007 or whatever it was on my old laptop. It also had Excel. o I know the basics. I now need an "Office 2019 for Dummies" to figure out the programs I don't know. It will take me some time to get proficient in all parts of this product.. I had a rough start--partly my fault. I bought the laptop and software online. I knew I would need a key code to access this product, which was already loaded on the laptop. But I couldn't find the car I was supposed to have with the code. It took 2 trips to the Best Buy store to even see what it looked like. They said look inside the bag (I did ) and inside the box the laptop came in. (I did.) Could find nothing. Turns out they had taped it to the outside of the laptop box, bending it over a corner partially obscuring what it was. If they hadn't shown me what one looked like in the store I may never had found it. Yes, I am no geek. :)

    I bought the software for our new computer. I am not really fond of not getting a disc to load my own software, but the online downloading is fine. I like the old way better. I had to actually take the card back to best buy, after trying to load the first one for over an hour with a Microsoft engineer tech. The product codes could not be found by Microsoft. They gave me a case number to provide to Best Buy when I returned it to get a new card. Best Buy gave me a new card after explaining the situation. They were really nice about it and we couldn't understand why Microsoft did not have their own product codes loaded into their own system....The 2nd card worked like a charm and I have all of my new Microsoft software loaded on my computer...shouldn't it be cheaper for customers if they just buying a card to download their products online? something should cost less...$100

    Buy a new H&S 2019 or retain the 2016?

    Yes, the 2019 has many new features, however, I have not yet learned to use them or know how many new features are added to the 2019 from the 2016. I have a 2016 in my laptop I bought in 2015. I bought this H&S 2019, because I bought a new desktop. Instead of transferring the 2016 to this new desktop, so I decided to have an independent office in this desktop, and leave the 2016 in the laptop if I have to carry it out. This is a good idea, for work done in one device with office can be retrieved from another device from one drive. Especially I bought it on Black Friday as a bundle with the new desktop, the price was nearly only 50%. A bargain! If you prefer a permanent version of Office instead of the subscription 365, I would agree that each functioning computer you would use regularly should have a H&S in it.

    Office Home & Student 2019 for 1 device The set-up and installation was super easy. Going to the office set up site you have the option to create a new account or sign in to an already existing account. Once there you enter the office product key. It walks you through to the site and has an install link. Once you click the link it begins to install the whole suite. Hte install completed within 10 mins it may have been 5 mins. It was super easy and simple. Once it as completed I opened the word app signed in with the same office account and the activation was completed. The suite came with word, powerpoint, onenote, excel, access, publisher, outlook. Everything is running smooth and sweet. Word and powerpoint are probably the most used apps in our household. The features and time tested use for business make it reliable.

    So I have been testing out the 2019 version of Office Home & Student and I must say, Microsoft keeps getting better and better with their Office Suite. This came along just in the nick of time as well. Downloading and installing took about 15 minutes or so (nowhere near as long as I originally thought it was gonna take). If you have ever used Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, etc. then each of these power programs are self-explanatory with a few features that fine-tune the always ever popular office suite that suits most people's needs. All of my current files ported over and opened up with no issues. I fully recommend this software/Office suite to anyone looking for something familiar and something they're used to. It's great for home offices, businesses, and/or students for school.

    Good price for the amount of things you get

    Posted

    While 150 may seem like a lot for a one device install, it is totally worth it. Other Microsoft Installs you use, charge you a yearly fee whereas with the one time install you pay 150 for a lifetime install. Overall, you get your money's worth in just under two years. And anyone I know uses Office Products like these way longer than two years. (Other Microsoft Office Installs charge you a yearly fee of 69/year or 99/year *or whatever the price may be*. Within two years you'll have paid 140 for office when you can pay 150 for a lifetime.) The only downside to this bundle is that once it is installed you cannot move it from one laptop/computer to another. Overall though, definitely the best option in my opinion.

    I really enjoy MS Office. There are lots of new features every time a version comes out which I appreciate. I bought the stand alone version. I am still trying to wrap my head around a subscription. That has its advantages with new features. I personally like the stand alone because it resides on my unit in a way that is mine and I can control. I have used the Office 365 web version. I like the stand alone features better. So far it has not disappointed. I also still wonder if there is a more economical price point. I liked the $99 version that used to exist. It has gone up in price over the last several years but it is still a quality product.

    Beware of Microsoft support scam

    While installing this software, I received an error and to contact support. So I started a chat session with whom I thought was a Microsoft support agent. It turns out this person sent my case to a third party “buddy” who claimed my brand new computer had a virus BoT and proceeded to install their firewall software for an annual fee. I contacted the Geek squad who verified this was an ongoing scam and happens all the time. Best Buy helped me out and I was able to get a new system and software replacement done by them. Beware of and be sure you are dealing with a legitimate Microsoft agent.

    perpetual license is the way to go.

    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network

    I'm so glad that Microsoft still has perpetual licenses available for their software. So many companies are going to a subscription based system and I refuse to buy into that. I've been using office 2007 since well....i'm guessing 2007 and it has been great for 11 years at one price. This new office has a lot more features and I'm still getting used to it so not as productive as of now. But knowing that the software is mine and I wont have to pay anymore for hopefully the next 10 years is awesome. I knocked off one star simply for the fact that you can only install it on one device. It would have been great if I could put it on my desktop and laptop.

    Don't buy online

    I ordered this online because I'm at least an hour from the nearest store. When I got it it was not activated. I fumbled with geek squad and Microsoft help hotlines to see if I could get it activated remotely and they were no help. So I went into a store where they made me pay an extra fee to purchase a replacement. In all, I overspent and wasted a lot of time and energy on this product ordering online. It is a fine product but the sheer incompetence around activating it was infuriating. I've never had this issue before and having me pay extra to get the product I had already paid for was absurd especially because I paid for expedited shipping and also got it late.

    Microsoft and Word

    I needed Word to write creative writing pieces (fiction and non-fiction). So far, my experience has been satisfactory. (Consumers should be aware of two different packages from Microsoft: one with an annual subscription which requires consumers to put a credit card on file; the other option is to buy a one year subscription. The one year subscription doesn't automatically update with the latest version of Microsoft Office but doesn't require a credit card on file. The caveat to the latter will require consumers to purchase the annual update, if he or she wants it.)

    I use the Word and the Power Point and they work well for what I want them for (teaching a once a week class. I use Word to make non-boring handouts). And I use the Power Point for image filled slides to review the chapter... makes the book much more interesting this way. hank you Microsoft for this wonderful product. But I can't figure out how to stop typing over text that I already typed, hence misspelled words... I can't correct them without retyping everything after the correction. sorry! Actually i should say that this is more complicated for me than the 2000 that i've been using for years, but i'm sure that i'll get used to it!

    Full-fledged Core Office Apps

    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network

    If you use Office at work (and really, who doesn't?) you already know how to use Home & Student 2019, because these are the full versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint. They're not watered down versions and will allow you to do just about anything you can with the full Office install. Also included is One Note. If you're a student or are buying this for a student, OneNote is perfect for taking notes in class. Setup is easy. Just log into your Microsoft account and go to the download page and enter the key on your card. The best part is that unlike Office 365, this version doesn't expire and can be used indefinitely, although only on one machine.

    This is simply a product code to access the Microsoft Office standard suite. PLEASE NOTICE THIS CODE IS JUST FOR ONE PERSON, FOR ONE COMPUTER. There are other options for groups. After you input the code, you just follow the onsite instructions to install the Office suite on your computer. Everything is well explained; the process was smooth and simple. I downloaded my office suite in about 10 minutes. That, and this product lasts on a subscription basis for up to a year, which is plenty of time to restore it later with no hassle.

    Don’t like changes to Word

    I would ordinarily give a Microsoft product 5 stars. But I am disappointed with the changes to WORD. Now I have to go into Finder to find documents I want to work on or print out. I don’t like the changes to the tool bars either. Grrr! In addition, I lost my old Outlook file with my contacts. I am recreating it in a paper index. So much for trying to go paperless. Finally, I would not have gone to the new version but I was getting messages that documents were not compatible with the 64-bit changes adopted by Apple.

    The only issue I had was when downloading was that i had a prior version of Office on my computer and when i tried to download it on to my computer it would not download. I ended up calling Microsoft Support because i was not sure why it would not download. After talking to the tech for a couple of minutes i told him i had a previous version he told me that was the problem and he remotely uninstalled the previous version and downloaded the new version for me. I'm not computer savvy so i didnt know about having to uninstall the old version first.

    Got office h&s 2019 cuz I got a new computer and you can't transfer office software anymore. I had office 2013 on old computer, so to access that I had to get this. It does not play well with the old version. Many things can't open. Not happy about that. So, as I go along, I have to copy info ( letters and such) on a flash driveand then paste to new doc on new computer, then I have it. You would think Microsoft would let it migrate all, not so. I gave it 4 stars only because it has some cool options that 2013 didn't, but the migration and access only gets a three star.

    I decided to upgrade my Office suite when I purchased a new computer. I know there is always a learning curve with a new software but am disappointed how basic this is. One thing I really miss is being able to scan a document from my scanner into my computer. I use this feature frequently to send signed forms out. I have looked everywhere in word and notebook and looked through HELP but nothing is there. I know I'm networked with the printer/scanner because I can print. I will not give up trying to find a way but sure do miss how easy it was with 2003 and 2007.

    I have found the Mew Microsoft word to be easily to adopt. I like the new additions for publication of my work as a Life Coach. Also, it is adaptable to my everyday work. My wife who doesn't like change has found the program to easily workable for here printing and line item needs. Overall I am very please with how the product is performing. I found the technical support when needed to be very cooperative, patient, understanding, and supportive. They were able to resolve my questions quickly and in a professional manner.

    Purchased this online and got into so much drama! Scratched off the code and it did not work. Called up Best Buy for support and they passed me on to Microsoft. I was back and forth with Microsoft and they still could not figure out why it would not work. After almost a month, I took it in to a Best Buy store to return. They figured out that the online shipment process was not done correctly. They did not activate the card prior to shipping. UGH!
