Full Answer

When Microsoft products are purchased, a private key is given. This key, or code, allows users to activate their programs. As of 2014, Microsoft offers free trials for PowerPoint and other programs. These trials vary in length of time, and they come with a temporary product key. After the trial expires, users must pay to continue receiving access.
