My laptop was repaired and I fixed it by giving to a shop and they installed MICROSOFT Office 2010 Professional plus.  First it wasn't licensed,  then by using CMD I activated it with its own product key And I was happy to see its activated and it's working with out problem It even didn't show a single notification about expiring or other         BUT  My friends told that MICROSOFT Office Professional plus 2010 will expire in 1year and will ask to pay again Is it true? Or  Will my Microsoft Office will be permanent forever?  I will be more happy if you could help me out,  Thanks you for atleast reading friends!@

If properly purchased and license, Office 2010 Pro will last forever. I have a Windows 7 spare machine I purchased in 2010 and Office Pro has been running on it ever since.  It does not expire.

If you get bad licensing or trial licensing, I am not sure what may happen except that it will expire at some point.

Microsoft Office Professional Plus is only available through volume licensing it.  If you didn't obtain it through a volume license agreement you are almost certainly using it illegally.

Not withstanding the licence agreement issues mentioned above, maybe your friend is referring to the support for MS Office 2010.

According to the following links:

http://www.allyncs.com/docs/lifecyclesupport.html

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/lifecycle?p1=13615&forceorigin=esmc

MS Office 2007 support will expire next year but extended support for Office 2010 SP2 doesn't expire until October 2020.

If you use a product key with other than a subscription based product, then the license is perpetual. Support/Updates are separate items entirely.  I believe Office 2013 was the very first subscription based office offered.
