Chapter 2. Office Basics > Starting Office Programs When and How You Want

Starting Office Programs When and How You Want

When you start Office for the first time, it generally wants to activate itself, which means it needs to send a small amount of information to Microsoft. You don’t need to include any personal information or even register. The activation wizard looks at your computer’s hardware and creates a key to identify it. It then sends the key to Microsoft and retrieves an activation code. If you don’t want to use the Internet, you can call Microsoft at the phone number provided by the wizard, read the key, and retrieve your activation code.

When you start an Office application, you usually see the Office Language Bar, shown in Figure 2.3. The Language Bar gives you access to dictation, voice commands, and a small number of other functions that vary a bit, depending on whether an Office application is running.
