How to Extend Microsoft Office 2013/2019 & Office 365 Trial to 180 Days

As of now, millions of online & offline businesses rely on Microsoft’s office suite tools to create documents, communicate, and balance their book. To help businesses and individuals, Microsoft usually releases a trial version of all its software, including Office Suites and Office 365.

If you don’t have enough money to purchase the latest version of the office suite, then you can try the product for free for 30 days. However, after 30 days, the service will be stopped, and you need to purchase a license to activate the product.

What about extending the trial period? You can easily extend the office trial without paying and use it for 180 days. The method to reset trial works on Office 2019, Office 2016, and Office 2019 and Office 365.

So, in this article, we are going to share a detailed guide on how to extend the Microsoft Office trial to 180 days. Let’s check out.

Important: To reset the trial, we are going to run the ospprearm.exe tool. The tool is available on the classic MSI package of Office 2016/2013/2010 and the Click2Run distribution of Office 2019/Office 365.

Steps to Extend the Trial – Office 2016/2013/2010
