Microsoft Office 2012 Product key
Microsoft Office 2012 is a version of Microsoft Office, a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2011 and includes extended file format support, user interface updates and support for touch among its new features. In addition to its many features, Microsoft Office 2012 includes a wide range of MS Office product activation keys, which can be used to activate the software and begin using it immediately. The product activation keys for Microsoft Office 2012 are divided into two categories: Product Keys and Product IDs. Product Keys are used to install or activate a copy of Microsoft Office 2012 and are typically included in the product packaging. Once entered, the product key will activate the software and prevent it from being accessed without providing a valid license. Product IDs are also used for installation and activation, but have the added advantage of being linked to a single user, making them less likely to be used by multiple users. Both Product Keys and Product IDs are typically 25 alphanumeric characters long. They are usually printed on a card included with the product packaging and can also be found inside the packaging. If you cannot find the product key, you can contact Microsoft customer service and they can provide you with the product key. Once you have the product key and product ID, there are several methods you can use to activate Microsoft Office 2012. If you purchase the physical media version, you can use the included Product Activation Wizard to activate the software. If you purchase the digital download version, you will need to use the online Product Activation Tool to activate the software. Finally, if you purchase the subscription version, you will need to log into your account and activate the software from there. Regardless of the activation method you use, you will be required to enter the product key and product ID. Once the software is activated, you will be able to use all the features and functions of Microsoft Office 2012.
