Windows 10: I Don’t Want An Office Subscription

Sunday, June 19th, 2016 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, Windows 10

One of the biggest concerns we hear about Windows 10 is having a word processing program.¬† “Windows 10 sucks. I liked XP much better I had to buy a new machine and lost all my software. Now if I want Word Perfect I have to buy a subscription from the app store and renew every year damn money grubbing Microsoft. This OS is so slow it’s a good thing I’m retired¬† because This snail’s pace just for ordinary programs really is bad this OS is junk from the word go. I thought Windows was supposed to make things easier not harder it take me all day to just check my email.”

Word Perfect is not connected to Microsoft. You can still buy it as a non-subscription program that you just install on your PC and use for the life of your computer. Microsoft Office is also still available as a one-time purchase to install on your PC.

Or, if you’re word processing needs are pretty simple, just use the WordPad word processor that’s already on your PC since it’s included with Windows 10.


Other free alternatives include using Microsoft Office for free online or downloading a free office suite like LibreOffice, OpenOffice or WPS Office.


If you’re running 10 on a new machine, it should be pretty fast. Do you mean the OS is slow your Internet connection is slow? If you’ve got a few more details, we may be able to help you troubleshoot that.
