You want to install Office 2010 on your computer, but you can't find it in any of the local stores. Maybe the price doesn't invite you to invest. Either way, you can download Office 2010 from the internet in a matter of minutes, either legally or almost legally.
Method 1 of 2: Download from Microsoft
Step 1. Visit the Office 2010 download page
Microsoft Office can be legally downloaded from the Microsoft website as long as you have a valid 25 character product key. To find it easily, search for "Use your Office 2010 product key".
- Office 2010 is no longer available for sale or as a trial version from Microsoft. You can still purchase boxed copies from other retailers.
- Even though it is no longer available for purchase, you can still download it with a valid product key.
Step 2. Click the Download button
Enter your product key when prompted. Select your language, then enter the CAPTCHA code. Your download will begin when you click on the Submit button.
Step 3. Wait for your download to complete
The time that the download will take will vary depending on the Office pack you have and your internet connection. It will probably take an hour.
Step 4. Install Office
Once you have finished downloading the installer file, you can begin installing Office. You will need to enter your product key again during the installation process, so keep it handy.
Method 2 of 2: Download from other sources
Step 1. Find a copy of Office to download from your favorite download site
Office is available on a wide variety of torrent sites, although this method is legally questionable.
Step 2. Scan the file for viruses
Always check downloaded files for viruses, as non-traditional methods are great for hackers to take advantage of. Read the comments on the torrent site to see if anyone else has been having trouble.
Step 3. Find a product key
In order to install Office 2010, you will need to enter a valid product key. Some downloads will come with a text file containing the keys that you can use, while others will have a key generation program that will create a unique key that you can use.
Be very careful with key generators because they can easily install a virus without you knowing it
Step 4. Install the program normally
Once you find a valid key, the rest of the installation will continue as normal. If you have a cracked version installed, you may not be able to access Office updates from Microsoft.
