    Is Office 365 the only Office available to download onto the Surface Book. Is there a way to install Office 13 from a CD onto the Surface Book - I really do not want to have to pay a monthly fee just to be able to edit or write docs. That seems a little harsh!!!!

    As far as I can tell, you cannot get Office 2013 on a CD. Even if you buy the "retail" version, all you get is the product key and instructions on how to download and install it. I would guess that 2016 is the same. Of course, this is still different than a subscription. You pay once and can use it "forever."

    Still using Office 2010, copy the file locally or install of a thumb drive, no problems and to be honest I haven't seen any compelling reason to upgrade.

    Microsoft does, indeed, provide a non-subscription-based install of Office. You can get to the web page via various avenues but the bottom line is that you're looking for a home-based/one-time install and you will land here:

    Microsoft Office Home & Student 2016

    After you install Office and come to the registration part in the small print is a place to click that allows you to enter a enter a Key instead of using it as Office 365.

    I have Office 2016 without a subscription on my Surface Book. I just entered the key at the install instead of opting for 365.
