How do I change the activation code on office h&b 2013?  The option is not available through uninstall -> change.  I tried changing it through the command prompt but that didn't work either.  Is there an easier way?

Change product key option is in the right-side panel.

And you already tried?:

For 32 bit Windows:

(1) cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:yourkeygoeshere

(2) For 64 bit Windows (assuming you are using 32 bit Office):

cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS" /inpkey:yourkeygoeshere

Or:

Uninstall, restart, and reinstall.

You may try to use Microsoft Fix It to uninstall.
