    Install Office 365 in place of Office 2010


    On a different computer, I had a trial version of Office 365 installed. I purchased Office 2016 and uninstalled the trial 365 and installed Office 2016. However, Office 365 "remnants" mingled in with the Office 2016 installation and it was a mess getting it straightened out. Perhaps some profile type files, registry entries and who knows what else remain after the uninstall and found their way into the new installation.

    Is there a way to absolutely remove everything associated with Office 2010 before I install Office 365.

    Hi.
    You could always try REVO to uninstall it. But, I think, with the major changes to Office beginning with O2013, you really shouldn't see problems with 2010, that you saw with 2016.
