Curry's wiped DD's laptop when they repaired it but when I took it back to say that Office was wiped too, they told me to reinstall it online.

Haven't got a clue how. I've logged in, nowhere does it say to reinstall. Help!

What version of Office do you have, 2007, 2010 or 2013?

I'm really embarrassed answering this, but I don't know blush

If you have an older version of Office it probably came on a DVD with the laptop when you bought it. If you've lost that you could be in a spot of bother.

If it's more recent, you would have a Microsoft account and be able to log in to the Office 365 website to download.

You can now take out a subscription to Office 365 if you want to throw some money at the problem but I would use one of the free alternatives in the meantime. If you have a good internet connection, Google Docs/Sheets/Slides are good (as are the online versions of Word and Excel). Otherwise LibreOffice.
