Lenovo G505 Microsoft Office 2013 Activation Product Key



I've recently purchased 2 lenovo g505 laptops and I still haven't activated or used all the features. I'm trying to activate microsoft office but I'm having much difficulty. There's a shortcut icon on the desktop of my laptop to activate ms office 2013. It's asking for me to enter a product key which I can't find anywhere. I've checked every inch of my laptop, all the packaging it came in and the manuals. I've seen product keys on other brand new laptops located next to the touch pad and others near the battery. Aren't all brand new laptops suppose to come with a product key?? Aren't the laptops I purchased suppose to include a free version of MS Office?? Where is my product key??????

Re: Lenovo G505 Microsoft Office 2013 Activation Product Key

hi Black_Rose,


Welcome to the Forums.


Looking at the preloaded softwares for the Ideapad G505, this unit comes with a Office 2013 Trial. If you specifically purchased a license for MS Office 2013, you should have a product key card as stated in this article (the MS Office 2013 purchase should also be on the receipt). If you can't find it, you may need to contact the place of purchase.


To get a 60-day trial of office, you will need to do the following

1. Uninstall MS Office 2013 from Control Panel > Programs or run the MS Office 2013 Uninstaller

2. Download Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 and follow the instructions on how to obtain a product key (you will need to sign-in using a hotmail / outlook / windows live email)
