      I just upgraded to Office 365 as I figured it was time to move on from Office 2010.  Office 2010 is still installed on the computers and I am wondering if I can just get rid of it or do I need to keep some of it for Office 365.  If I can get rid of it, then what is the most efficient and reliable way of doing so?  Any insight that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

      Ron,

      IMHO the only reason to keep Office 2010 around is if you have a need to do compatibility testing on features and/or VBA code you may have in your office files that you want to share with others that may still be using Office 2010.

      HTH 😎

      Uninstall the various apps.

      It may not be necessary, but I’ve always uninstalled old Office versions before installing new ones. No reason to encourage potential conflicts without good reason.
