Microsoft Office 2010 has been released by Microsoft. The popular Office suite is available in three different editions in retail shops: Office Home and Business 2010, Office Home and Student 2010 and Office Professional 2010.

Office Home and Student 2010 is the basic Office edition retailing for $149.99. It includes the core Office modules Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

Next in line is Office Home and Business 2010 which retails for $279.95. It includes Microsoft Outlook on top of the modules offered in the basic edition.

Top of the line product Office 2010 Professional retails for $499.95. It is the only retail Office edition that includes Access 2010 and Publisher 2010.

Some customers, especially those that have not participated in the Office 2010 Beta might want to download trial versions of Microsoft Office 2010 before deciding whether to buy the new version or not.

    If you download all the three files, you will notice that all of them are the same file with the exact same hash.

    Just a heads up.

    Of course not. Way too expensive.
    Access and Excel would be the only things I need and 500$ for that is too much. I’ll stick to OpenOffice.

      Clarence, you can either load the documents from within Office 2010 or fix the associations so that the files are loaded into Office whenever you double-click them.

      @Clarence. If you have Win7, click “Compatibility Mode” for the (old) Word files’ “.doc” extensions to work w/ Office 2010. (For older OS systems, you *do* need follow the other replies.)
      *Having just bought Office 2010 for my Win7 machine, was very relieved @ the Win7 “compatibility mode” bypass. (Hope the same is true for you!)

    So, I’ve downloaded the trial version of the software I want to try out and expect to purchase — but now it’s asking me for a key, which I don’t have. I see about 10 other people have had the same problem. What’s the key to use? Where do we get it? Is this some kind of secret?

      2010 is an almost total redo of Office XP. Has a “ribbon” on top, w/ all you want & use frequently. Also allows personalizing the ribbon, according to your needs. In add’n to those improvements, the organization, via tabs, is much more logical and you can see your (proposed) changes by hovering w/ your mouse. (IOW: hover over “Bold” & you see it; hover over “indent more,” etc.)
      Those w/ more updated Office versions (those familiar w/ the ribbon), is a new & improved (tighter & sleeker) version of the same.
      * Be sure to take the tutorial (TIP: the interactive lesson requires IE. Don’t bother w/ other browsers, unless you plan to skip it.)
      **Am a professional writer. I stayed w/ XP until 2010 Office. LSS: Am “head over heels in love” w/ (Home & Business) Office 2010!

    Nice one. I’ve just had to reinstall Windows 7 on a clients notebook and noticed there was a, ‘Microsoft Product Identifier’, card with a product key for Office Home and Business 2010 with it. But, there was no Office disc or software in with the bundled discs. So, this download was exactly what I was looking for. Run it, and used the product key on the card, and everything as I want it.

    Thanks again.

        AY! (Have NO idea where “Alicia” got her info, but…)
        LSS: NO KEY IS NEEDED FOR THE TRIAL!
        You get a 30-60 day free trial of MS Office (depending site & timing), fully functional.
        *Then* after your trial period ends, you can BUY the fully functional version (exactly the same as trial version, pre-expiration) & when your pyt clears, THEN MS emails the product key. (The trial version *can* be used, albeit w/ “limited functionality,” post-expiration but is “worthless” ~ imho).
        NOTE: When I used the free trial, was not a time limit, but usage limit/s. IOW: one could use the trial version for “x” amt of times before expiration. (This has obviously changed, but there may still be some of the older trials available.)
        Hope this clears things up… (all *I* wanted to know is if these download sites included 64-bit versions. Hoping the one word answer, “yes,” was an answer to the same.)

        Scroll to page 3 of comments. “ammmar7may” explains everything, in great detail. (You s/b redirected from the MS website to a pg w/ key for trial+order details. The “Download Now” button has options — 32 or 64-bit.)
        *Should the mod *not* catch my [mistaken] reply, my info was via my experience w/ a free trial of Office 2010, pre-loaded, on a new laptop. (“My ‘bad’!”)

    Thank you for the link! A friend had a bad turn with an update that caused the MBR to be come corrupted. When she purchased the laptop, MS Office Home and Student 2010 was preinstalled.

    Once the HD was reformatted and the OS reloaded, we needed to find the download for Home and Student 2010 and your website has gotten her back up and running!

    Definitely going to recommend others visit this site for help!

    Another “edition” or version of this is the Microsoft Office 2010 starter, which does not expire, and provides you with Microsoft Word Starter and Microsoft Excel Starter. You can learn more about it, and even download it here. I would like to note that this does NOT expire, and does not need a product key. It is 100% free to download and free to use forever. I’m in college and have not had any problems using this “starter” version of microsoft word.
