[Updated] Microsoft Office 2010 Product Keys
In case the above keys don’t work, here are a few more serial keys. One of these keys is certain to work.
What is a Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key?
A Microsoft Office 2010 product key is a 25-character serial key that allows you to activate MS Office. The serial key looks something like this: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
Without a working serial key, your MS Office suite will not work properly. Some features require activation before you can use them.
Is Microsoft Office 2010 Free?
The short answer is no. Although it can come preinstalled when you buy your computer, MS Office has never been free. In order to use Microsoft Office (2010 or any other version) you need to have a product key — which usually costs money.
Nowadays, Microsoft offers free trials of their latest Office 365 suite, but you still need to pay to access the full version. There are free MS Office alternatives online (such as LibreOffice or Google Docs), but Microsoft Office itself isn’t free.
We have compiled a serial key list that allows you to activate your copy of MS Office without having to pay a cent. If you don’t have one, you can use one of our Microsoft Office 2010 product keys.
Why Do You Need a Microsoft Office Product Key?
As we’ve seen, MS Office isn’t free. This means that you need to have a valid product key that allows you to activate it. Without a valid serial key, you can’t use a licensed product, unless you’re using the free trial version.
Although you don’t need to purchase Office to use it, you do need a valid Microsoft Office 2010 product key. The good news is that you can easily find a free, working product key right here in this article.
Microsoft Office 2010 needs a product key for the activation to work.
Where to Find Your Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key
If you’ve acquired a legitimate version of MS Office 2010, you already have a product key. However, depending on how you’ve acquired it, there are several possibilities for where your serial key might be located.
- If you’ve bought a CD/DVD of MS Office 2010, you should have the serial key inside the product box.
- If you’ve purchased Microsoft Office 2010 straight from the Microsoft Store (online), then the product key should be in an email sent to you at the time of purchase.
- If Microsoft Office 2010 came preinstalled with your computer, then you might need to contact the store where you’ve bought your computer.
- Torrent websites and other websites that offer MS Office free downloads do not supply genuine product keys.
In case you can’t find your Microsoft Office 2010 product key and can’t proceed with the activation, don’t worry: we supply a free, working serial key list a bit further down.
How to Activate MS Office Using a Free Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key
After inputting your Microsoft Office 2010 product key, there are two options to activate the Office suite: online activation or activation through the telephone.
Let’s take a look at each of these methods separately.
Activate MS Office 2010 Through The Internet
After choosing the option to activate by using the internet, the activation wizard will automatically connect to the Microsoft license service.
If you have a valid product key, the wizard will validate it and activate your product. If you’re using an already used key, or if the key is invalid, you will get an error and your Office copy will not be activated.
Activate MS Office 2010 Through The Telephone
The other option is to activate your copy of Office through the telephone. It’s quite easy to do so.
First, you need to locate the phone number. It will appear somewhere in the activation wizard.
Then you will need to ask support for the confirmation ID. Once support has supplied it to you, you will need to insert the ID in the activation wizard and hit the enter key. Afterwards you’ll just need to wait for Office to activate.
What Happens If You Don’t Activate MS Office 2010?
You need to provide a Microsoft Office 2010 product key during the installation process. If you don’t have a key or if you input an invalid key, the installation will fail.
If you’ve installed MS Office as a trial, you’ll be asked to input your serial key after the trial period expires. If you don’t enter the key, then the product will become inactive and you won’t be able to use it.
This means that you need a Microsoft Office 2010 product key at the time of installation or after the trial expires.
We hope you’ve successfully activated your copy of MS Office 2010. If none of the serial keys seem to work, check back at a later date. We always keep a fresh supply of Microsoft Office 2010 product keys.
