Sometimes you need support for your operating system, product or service from Microsoft. Microsoft has several convenient channels to support customers that can help solve a variety of problems. You can contact us by phone, email, or chat online so you can quickly resolve the issue with the help of a Microsoft expert.
Method 1 of 3: Contacting Microsoft by phone
Step 1. Find your product key
Your product key is specific to your product or device and may provide additional information about your item. The key consists of 25 alphanumeric characters, written as 5 groups of 5 characters separated by dashes. It is usually located on the label on the product's original carton.
- If you can't find the product key, don't worry. A Microsoft representative can help you locate it, depending on the type of Microsoft product or device you have.
- If you're not calling about a product you paid for, such as Windows or Office, you can skip this step.
Step 2. Find your warranty if you have one
If you bought a warranty for your product or service, look for it. Write down all relevant details, such as the duration of the warranty and the degree of coverage, so that you can communicate this to the Microsoft representative.
