  4. Please Fix the "Select Office for this device" screen

    I have one Personal Email connected to 6 Copies of Microsoft Office 2016 products.
    when I try to activate the Office on a new PC , I don't know which license is linked to which PC ??? and always trying to guess which license to choose …

    So Please Microsoft add the Activation code Number or the Product Key under each one , because the name method is stupid and confusing and creates a lot of issues when trying to activate a device to the same email … see attached file

  9. Off-line Help

    Excel Help should be configured like the Windows O/S. The basic Help package should loaded when Excel is installed. Help updates should be applied (as available) as the user connects to the Internet. This would allow users to operate in an off-line environment - as many of us still do, and still have access to Excel Help functions.

  11. Microsoft Office - Family License

    The current strategy of Microsoft is to sell either office 365 (yearly subscription) or single permanent license products. This I discovered only today after purchasing a new laptop for the family and tried to get my recently purchased office installed on the new PC. It would not let me do this (even under the same user account) , since I have my recently purchased office on my other PC.

    I feel this strategy is very unfriendly toward family consumers, as I have to sepdn 150 EUR for each PC to install office on it and allow all members of my…

  12. Rows to repeat at top of page (headings)

    This used to be a thing in Excel. In Page Setup you could specify rows to repeat on each page (top/bottom/side) for things like column headings.

  20. I am not connected to internet. To "validate" my programme means every month walking down the road to connect for this ****! ****HEADS!

    Every month or so I get thiis "Cannot validate programme - connect to internet." This is ! I have to walk lugging my computer down the road just to "Validate" the programme. This is . I should not have to validate my progamme. The ***KING subscrition expiry daty should be logged into the programme when I renew it, and it should be right until that date comes around. NOT EVERYONE IS ON THE INTERNET 24/7. I have two machines, one at home and one I take out. What do people do who have a PC....MORONS!
