Solved!

When I open Word on Windows, it tells me it is unlicensed. I thought Office came free with laptop

HP laptop 7th Gen

When try to use Word, there is a message saying it's unlicensed and I can't perform any edits. The laptop came with Microsoft Office installed. I can't understand why Word won't work.

@Clare61 

The version of MS Office that comes preloaded is usually Office 365 and that is a trial version -- which expires and can not be activated.

 

If you paid extra for a retail license, then you would need to contact HP Customer Support directly to get the info you need to activate that license.

If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!.

Thank you WAWood. I was trying to work, at home, on a document from work where I have Office 365 free. Thanks again for your advice. Maybe I just need to sign into Office 365 from home. New laptop - not very experienced.
