Welcome to the HP Community.

 

The context of your question seems to be that you want to create a document on your computer.

 

Windows - just the Operating System - without having purchased any extra software generally includes the very basic "WordPad" program - not much, but it is certainly something in which you can create a document that you can save, print, and / or send to someone using your email service, for example.

 

There is free Office style software - you have to download it and install it in your computer. Files created in the "free" Office style software can be opened / converted to a Word document if / when wanted.  If not, you can always export the document to PDF and save it / send it / print it.

5 free open source alternatives to Microsoft Office

 

Windows Office "online" software can be used, if you like.

Use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more for free with Office on the web 

 

Yes, if you want the true OFFICE experience, you have to purchase Microsoft Office.

There are both single purchase stand-alone single license options and the Microsoft 365 subscription models.

Information abounds on the net - a couple of examples:

hi

https://support.hp.com/ie-en/document/c07914622

If the question is whether there is word processing software, difficult to answer
it is just mentioned a trial version of microsoft 365
But you can find all you need then, there are many free software
So either you buy this model if you like it, and then install what it takes, if that is the point of the question, or you will have to look for something else maybe.
