Follow the prompts and after Office installs, click Close.
In the Activation wizard, click I want to activate the software over the Internet, and then follow the prompts. Youâll need to activate Office to keep your Office programs fully working.

Note: By default, Office 2010 installs the 32-bit version of the suite. However, if you have a 64-bit Windows operating system and you want to install the 64-bit version of Office 2010, you will need to uninstall any 32-bit versions of Office and follow the 64-bit installation procedure in this article[^2^].
How to Use Office 2010
Once you have installed and activated Office 2010, you can start using it on your PC. To launch an Office application, such as Word or Excel, click Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Word 2010 or Microsoft Excel 2010. You can also pin your favorite Office applications to the taskbar or the Start menu for easy access.
When you open an Office application, you will see a ribbon interface that contains tabs with different commands and features. You can use these commands and features to create and edit your files. For example, in Word 2010, you can use the Home tab to change the font size, color, and style of your text; the Insert tab to add pictures, tables, or charts; the Page Layout tab to adjust the margins, orientation, or columns of your document; and so on.
You can also use the File tab to access the Backstage view, where you can save, print, share, or protect your files. For example, in Excel 2010, you can use the Save & Send option to send your workbook as an email attachment or save it to a cloud service like OneDrive; or use the Info option to check for compatibility issues or encrypt your workbook with a password.
If you need help with using any of the Office applications or features, you can click the Help button (the question mark icon) on the top right corner of the ribbon. This will open a window where you can search for topics or browse through categories of help articles.
