I have just got a new acer computer veriton n4640 tiny which has ms office 365 installed, a subscription service I do not want. I intend to get an ms office 2010 download, which is more than adequate for me. Should I uninstall Office 365 first?

    Yes, however you should have a license for MS Office 2010. The key cannot be swapped and the Office 365 probably would be a trail version. Good luck.

    To remove Office 365, go to run command and then appwiz.cpl and remove it.
    BElieve in YOUrself.

    Won't the win 10 uninstall programme remove it?

    You should be able to remove it from the control panel. Are you having any difficulties or finding it?

    Somewhat belatedly, thank you for the advice. I successfully removed 365 and have installed 2016.
