If you still have an Office 2010 installation disc and a product key, you can install this version of Office on your Windows 10 PC. However, you should know that Office 2010 is no longer supported by Microsoft, which means you won't receive any security updates or bug fixes. You may also encounter some compatibility issues with newer versions of Windows and Office. Therefore, it is recommended that you upgrade to Microsoft 365, which offers the latest features and services for Office applications.
If you decide to install Office 2010 on Windows 10, here are the steps you need to follow:
Check if your PC is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows. To do this, go to Settings > System > About and look for the System type. You can also press the Windows key + Pause/Break key to open the System Properties window.
Uninstall any previous versions of Office from your PC. To do this, go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features and select the Office program you want to uninstall. Then, click Uninstall and follow the prompts.
Insert the Office 2010 disc into the drive. If the setup wizard doesnât start automatically, open File Explorer and navigate to the disc drive. Then, double-click SETUP.EXE.
When prompted, enter the product key. You can find it on the packaging of the disc or in your confirmation email if you purchased it online.
Read and accept the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then click Continue.
Choose the installation type. You can either click Install Now to install all the Office applications with the default settings, or click Customize to select which applications and features you want to install or remove.
Follow the prompts and after Office installs, click Close.
In the Activation wizard, click I want to activate the software over the Internet, and then follow the prompts. Youâll need to activate Office to keep your Office programs fully working.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Office 2010 on Windows 10. You can now start using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other Office applications on your PC.
