Where MS Office 2019 is on new P73 - UPDATE

2020-06-29, 21:27 PM

I received my new ThinkPad P73 from Lenovo yesterday. I paid for Microsoft Office Home and Business 2019 to be on this computer but could not find it on the computer, just the free Office version. Here's how I got the MS Office 2019 THAT I PAID FOR onto this new computer, below.



The tech support chat feature for Lenovo orders helped me resolve this question. I had to login to MS account and then open a MS program like Word, as the free Office 365 version was loaded on the new computer. Then I had to click the Activate button in Word to proceed with activation of my MS office Home and Business 2019 package. There were several steps after that, but I got the programs I had ordered with the computer on my computer. It would have been helpful if Lenovo had included some instructions.

I believe that you have to have a Microsoft account for the software to be enabled. The software comes down from the Microsoft store if I remember correctly.
