How to transfer Microsoft Office to new computer with Windows 11

In this article, we’ll see how to transfer Microsoft Office to new computer – including Outlook, Word, Excel, Power Point and other Office components (and other programs you may need transferred from one computer to another). This works for all Office versions – Office 365, Office 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007 and even 2003. The transfer includes all software, settings and files, including documents, emails, accounts, passwords, contact lists, presentations, spreadsheets, PSTs and all other data. In fact, you can also transfer other programs and files as well, not just Office, and they will all function just like on the old machine.

We will be using an automatic transfer tool – Zinstall WinWin – which allows to transfer Microsoft Office to a completely different computer, and even different Windows. For example, you can transfer Office from a Windows 10 HP to a Windows 11 Dell – and still retain all of your applications, accounts and files.

One last note is on licensing: during the transfer, you can even automatically transfer Office license and serial numbers as you have them on the old computer. Of course, Office will still validate your license after the transfer, and you should have a valid license to pass that validation. However, this means that if you do have a valid legal license, you can transfer even if you do not have the installers or don’t remember your license number!

How to transfer Microsoft Office to new computer

  1. Download Zinstall WinWin on both computers (you can download WinWin here)
  2. Run Zinstall WinWin on both computers (old and new)
    1. You don’t need to do any configurations for the computers to connect – it’s automatic.
    2. If the computers are already connect to same router, same Internet connection, or same wireless connection, you don’t need anything else.
    3. If the computers are not connected at all, connect them with a network / Ethernet cable.
  3. If you’d like to select which applications and files you want to transfer, press the Advanced menu. If you just want to transfer everything, you don’t need to go to the Advanced menu. Office software and files will be transferred automatically.
  4. Press “Go” on the new computer to start the transfer.
  5. The transfer will take a while (depending on how much data you have to transfer), and report to you when done.

That’s it! You have just transferred Microsoft Office to new computer, with all of your data and other programs, on your new computer.
