    I bought a new pc a few months ago and installed Office 2013 on it that I had used on my old one
    No problem
    But on the new pc I kept getting pop ups to activate Office 2016 which was on the new pc.
    It will let me open old files but now says activate before using
    Am unable to create ant new word docs excel files etc.
    How do I just defer to 2013 please?
    Do I uninstall 2016 will that force it to use 2013?

    Problem is I cant seem to find my numbers for office 2013
    Dont know where I put them.
    In case I have to re install it.
    That was working fine until 2016 popped up this week.

    Office 365 is currently 2016 version , but a subscription - this is put onto all OEM windows PC that you buy

    if you installed office 2013 , you must have used the product key, or activated via an email account setup for Microsoft

    how did you install office 2013 ? and activate
