Step 2: Create .CMD File:

Open the below link.

Now open the Notepad and copy-paste the complete code. Then click on the FILE and select the SAVE AS option.

Now save as .CMD file on the desktop.

Step 3: Run .CMD file as Administrator:

Now from the desktop, right-click on the.CMD file and run as administrator.  

The .CMD file will be executed as shown in the picture.

Once the office is activated you will see PRODUCT ACTIVATION SUCCESSFUL on the same screen.

Again, if you want to verify the activation, open a blank MS word document and follow the steps as shown in the picture.

After all these steps and office activation, you again turn-on your antivirus protection or Windows Defender because there is no need for the .CMD file anymore.
