Office 2010 RTM Change Product Key

, posted: 3-May-2010 11:41

In the BETA of Office 2010, you only had to access the backstage help menu to get to the "change product key" area.

In the RTM, you instead have to go to Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features, select the Office 2010 product and hit the "Change" button. 

You will then be prompted with a screen as below:

select "Enter a product key", enter your key, and follow your nose...

looks like this roundabout method is only required for the RETAIL version of Office 2010.  The volume licensing version, which uses different media, allows you to change the product key from the backstage/help menu.
