Uninstalling Office 2010 before loading Office 2019
Come on guys - - for clarity, I do not intend to run two versions of Office; I am replacing 2010 with 2019 on all my pc's. I am now retired and do not have the same level of need/use, so it is not economic for me to use 365. Please address the question directly. (1) I believe it best to uninstall Office 2010 before installing Office 2019 (2) Is using the "comes-with" Office uninstaller adequate to clear all elements; or, should one use Revo Uninstaller (or a better uninstaller if there is one to recommend) to be more confident that there would not be any "lingering gremlins" of 2010? I sincerely appreciate your replies. Thx, Doug
