Windows 7: Upgrading Office Starter

Upgrading Office Starter

I was given a Toshiba Satellite laptop which came w/Office 2010 Stater pre-installed. I've taken the laptop back to Factory Setup & have done most of my own reconfiguring so far. I know that the laptop has Office 2010 Starter on it (though I have not set this up yet) & only the limited versions of Word & Excel are included.

My question is: can I upgrade to get the full versions of Word, Excel & Powerpoint; but NOT Outlook & OneNote?

CJW, if you search in the programs along with the garbage the factory setup puts there, there should be a program that will allow you to upgrade to one of the different full office version. If you are a student or teacher, they have a cheap upgrade that is available.

Indeed there is an upgrade path once Starter is activated, but can I get the upgrade W/O Outlook & OneNote?

CJW, sorry but don't believe that you can pick and choose which features. You of course can buy Word and Excel separately but that would be more expensive. The academic version does not include outlook..
