Microsoft Application Not Licensed to Edit Files
Posted by Patricia Goodman on 30 August 2019 10:35 AM

Issue: When working in Word, Excel or PowerPoint that is installed on your computer, you receive an error message telling you that it is not licensed for editing files. This can be fixed with the below steps: 

  1. In the Microsoft application on your computer (eg. Word, Excel, PowerPoint), click on the File menu, and then click on Activate
  2. You will be prompted to sign in. Sign in with your Goshen College email address and password. 
  3. There may be another button that appears, asking you to click on a button to activate. If so, proceed with clicking the button. 
  4. After doing this, you will be able to use the Microsoft applications installed on your computer.
