    I bought my laptop and it came with microsoft office already downloaded but I've never been able to actually use it because I don't have the product key and I don't know where to find it? or is there something else I have to do? I'm using a windows 8.

    Windows PCs often come with MSOffice pre-installed - BUT its only a limited trial version and to continue to use you have to purchase a Key

    Did you purchase a Key at all ?

    Or did you buy a laptop and know it had a full version of MSOffice installed - If so they should have given you a Key

    its very rare to get a paid version of office on the PC - last time I saw that was about 14years ago with XP - although, I'm sure there are some offers around

    All most ALL PCs do have Office pre-installed as a trial only

    Some companies may offer a free one year subscription to Office 365

    How long ago did you purchase the laptop
    Whats the Make and exact Model of the laptop

    Do you have a receipt for the Laptop and also that it included a full version MSOffice and what version of MSOffice 2007/10/13 ?

    The monthly payment (Annual) Subscription is office 365 - various versions - Home & Personal

    You don't register any thing with it - Just proof of purchase of MSOffice

    If all you want to do is Print - then you could use a free version - like openoffice
