I can't believe these things have become so complicated. I purchased an Office 2019 key from G2A. How am I supposed to activate it?

Yup, sorry my bad, I was using a mobile version of Word and I couldn't find the "activate the product" thing. All I had to do was go to office.com, download Office and it asked my for product key there.

@noxdeouroboros Also, another quick question. Do these G2A Office codes work like Kinguin's Windows codes? I mean are they attached to my motherboard and can only be used on this PC?

Fyi, ALL windows licenses are tied to your motherboard.

You can move a windows license by linking it to your microsoft account and logging in on a new PC.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Yes that was my second question. What do you mean in your second sentence though? If I build a new PC I can use the Windows key I have right now by linking it to my Microsoft account?
