    I have office 2013 and I just purchased and activated office 365. Does anyone know exactly how do I deactivate my office 2013? I was going to give it away to a friend.

    I don't think you need to deactivate it. You just uninstall it from your computer and install it on the new one and it should be fine from what I can tell.

    I had a similar situation when I got my SP3 replaced.

    If you check the Office website you can see on what devices it's installed on. If you deactivate it on that machine then you can only use Office to open and view files.

    It's all explained on the site :)

    Thank you. I don't think you understand. I have office 2013 (permanent license) not office 365 already installed. Because of that it does not show up on the office website. I just talked to Microsoft and they said I just need to uninstall and reinstall for the office 365 features to take affect.

    Hi I know this is an old thread but i just figured this out... run a command prompt as Administrator (right-click on the command prompt shortcut and choose 'Run as Administrator') and then input the following and hit enter:

    cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /unpkey:<last 5 digits of product key>

    Likewise, you can change your product key by using:

    cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:<full product key>

    *Note, if you have the 64-bit version of Office, you will need to take the '(x86)' out of the command syntax.

    Good Luck!
