    Think carefully before choosing which version to use, there are pros and cons for each. Yes, you must uninstall the 32-bit version before installing 64-bits. More here....

    Choose between the 64-bit or 32-bit version of Office

    Does the 64 bit version offer much practical advantage over the 32 bit version which is installed by default?

    It is most likely better to use 32 bit. Depends though - see the link @Bree posted (#9 in this thread).

    There are many reasons to use 32 bit over 64 bit. 64 bit is only required if you make really huge files but then you lose all the 32 bit advantages - compatibility mainly.

    I'd seen the advice from Microsoft before, so looked it up for the OP. Actually the advice had changed emphasis since Office 2013, where 32-bit was recommended for most users.

    32-bit Office is recommended for most users

    We recommend the 32-bit version of Office for most users, because it's more compatible with most other applications, especially third-party add-ins. This is why the 32-bit version of Office 2013 is installed by default, even on 64-bit Windows operating systems....
