In this article, we'll see how to transfer Microsoft Office to a new computer, including Outlook with its email accounts, Word with its documents, Excel with its spreadsheets, Power Point its presentations, and all other Office components (and other programs you have on the computer). The transfer includes all software, settings and files, including documents, emails, accounts, presentations, spreadsheets, PSTs and all other data. In fact, you can also transfer other programs and files as well, not just Office, and they will all function just as on the old machine.

In this tutorial, we'll learn how to transfer Office completely automatically - using Zinstall WinWin. This allows to transfer Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016, Office 2019 and all Office 365 variants. In terms of Windows versions, you can use this tutorial for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista and XP. Yes, this does mean that you can transfer Office even from XP to Windows 10!

Using this method of transfer, you can even automatically transfer Office license and serial numbers as you have them on the old computer. Of course, Office will still validate your license after the transfer, and you should have a proper legal license to pass that validation. However, this means that if you do have a valid legal license, you can transfer even if you do not have the installation disks or don't remember your serial number!
