Activating MS Office 2019 legally – No Tools

Microsoft Office 2019 was released back in September 2018. It took a number of iterations for the Microsoft Office 2019 to see the final release. At the time of writing this guide, the MS Office 2019 is the latest version.

As usual, the Microsoft Office 2019 came with a subscription price heavy on the user’s pocket. Not everyone is capable of affording the MS Office. Especially, the students who need to make their assignments and presentations using the MS Word and MS Powerpoint, it’s really hard for them to get the MS Office. Universities and institutions often partner up with Microsoft to provide free tools to their students, but that’s not the case everywhere. There are only a few institutions that have joined Microsoft’s program.

A large number of users looking for tips and tricks to activate their trial version of MS Office. In doing so, they often end up damaging their devices. Having a method to freely and legally activate the MS Office 2019 is not less than a blessing in a disguise.
