A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that Windows 10 comes bundled with with Microsoft Office, sadly this isn’t the case. Don’t worry though, as we’re going to show you a legitimate ways to get MS Office, including Microsoft Word, on Windows 10 completely FREE.

Lets imagine you’ve just got a new PC or tablet computer and you want Microsoft Office. There are ways to get this at absolutely no cost and we’re going to show you how.

Getting Microsoft Word FREE on Windows, iOS and Andriod

Microsoft are currently allowing users to download their mobile apps for free on a wide range of devices including Windows, Android and iOS.

These are readily available through the relevant app store and to save you the hassle of going looking, we’ve included the relevant links below:

So what’s the catch?

Well, whilst you can download and use these apps totally 100% free, not everyone is eligible to actually get full unrestricted access to the land of Microsoft Office.

If you’re using a computer or laptop you’ll be limited to read only and will need an Office 365 subscription to get access to the full features (typically available from as little as £5.99 per month), UNLESS your computer screen is smaller than 10 inches, in which case you get full unrestricted access to the apps.

Windows 10 upgrades will cost £85 from July 30th

Microsoft To Charge £85 For Windows Upgrade

Microsoft is reminding everyone today that the free promotion for Windows 10 upgrades is finishing soon. The software maker first released Windows 10 as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 machines on July 29th last year, giving everyone a year to upgrade at no cost. Many had assumed Microsoft would keep the free upgrade rolling past the year cut off, but it appears the company is sticking to its original promise.

In an announcement of 300 million Windows 10 users, Microsoft has started driving awareness of the July 29th date. “Time is running out,” says Yusuf Mehdi, who heads up Microsoft’s Windows and devices marketing efforts. “The free upgrade offer will end on July 29th and we want to make sure you don’t miss out.” After July 29th, Microsoft says you’ll need to purchase a full version of Windows 10 Home for $119 (£85-ish) or get Windows 10 on a new machine.


Windows 10 has proved popular, especially with 300 million machines now running it, but the company wants one billion devices using the software within the next two years. Reminding people that they only have two months left to upgrade free of charge is one way of driving upgrade numbers, but opting to extend the promotion could also have similar results. It’s hardly surprising that Microsoft is sticking to its original plans, but there’s still time left for the company to change its mind.
