Each Office 365 Home Premium subscription comes with 5 Office installs for Mac or PC computers. If you don’t have any installs left and want to run Office on another computer, you can. But first you have to deactivate it on one of the first five computers.
Note Only the subscription owner can see or deactivate someone else’s installs. If you’re using a shared subscription and you’re not the owner, you can deactivate only your own installs.
On your account page, under Install Information, click Deactivate Install next to the name of the computer where you want to remove an install.
If you’re the subscription owner and you’ve deactivated an install from someone sharing your subscription, let them know.
When you deactivate an install, Office will run in read-only mode on that computer. That means you’ll be able to view and print documents but you won’t be able to edit them or create new ones. If you want to completely remove Office, you can.
