Nope, the license ended with the death of that PC. If you had bought Word or Excel then you would have that license and maybe some install media.
So I'm going with no because of the story.
If you had a license the web site to login into is at microsoft. Read "Microsoft account" at
I have recently changed my desktop computer and was wondering whether I could transfer my previous versions of Word and Excel to it.
I had Word and Excel on my old desktop that was running Windows Vista. My new desktop runs Windows 10 and does not have Microsoft Office. I have dismantled the old computer but have kept the hard drives. Is there a way to retrieve Word and Excel from the old hard drives and load them onto the new computer?
Or is there any other way I can retrieve Word and Excel, for example by logging my details into an online facility that would have kept track of my previous ownership, and from where I would be able to download the software again?
Also, I have recently downloaded Word and Excel to my Android smartphone. I think I was invited to do so following my attempts at downloading some files. I was not asked for payment but cannot understand why not. Is there a way to transfer the smartphone versions or Word and Excel to the desktop?
Or is it best to buy new versions of Word and Excel altogether?
