    You just go to Sign in to your Microsoft account to remove the key from your account, if you cannot uninstall from the hard drive. It deactivates the Product Key.

    >>Do I click on 'install' or 'product key'?
    I ask because I did not want to remove at this time but may plan to.

    Hi there

    @maranna

    The license is fine.

    what I would do is don't bother to uninstall on old machine.

    just install on new machine with license key.
    if it activates -- fine
    if it doesn't just ring Ms and say you want to move office to new computer - activation by phone is usually quick and painless. Often on retail these things will work on up to 3 machines before activation problems -- not always but you never know how Ms activation servers work these days !!!! however no problem with moving to a new machine - that's 100% legal if retail / VL (enterprise) version.

    cheers

    I was going to go from pc to mac and changed my mind. It made me think what to do if this old rig broke.
    I see where I can do either of the options suggested and appreciate the info.
    If necessary I will search for MS #. If that's the way you don't have to reply but if it is hard to get the number and you know it, I would appreciate it.

    You would have had to have a previous install of Office on the Mac, in order to use the key from 2019.
