    Uninstalling trial version of Office 365 in favor of Office 2010

    My new notebook (Win8.1) came with the trial version of Office 365.
    I will not keep it.
    I have the original CDs of Office 2010, which has everything I need.
    Can I install 2010 and wait the trial offer of Office 365 to expire, or can I install 2010 even before the trial version expires?
    Can I simply uninstall 365 and then install Office 2010?
    I'm not familiar at all with Win8.1, after years of using Win7.

    I appreciate any help you people can guve.

    Hi Flores,

    You should uninstall Office 365 right away and then install Office 2010.

    You can make 8.1 look pretty much like 7, if you install one of the Start button replacements. Classic Shell is free and one of the most popular, if you want to try it. Office 365 can be removed from the Control Panel, pretty much the way you would remove an app using the Control Panel in Windows 7.

    Regards

    Agreed, uninstall Office 365 first, I've done a few computers and it went well.

    Office 2010 (Home/Student) works just fine on my W8.1 machine.
    I would not want to have two versions of Office on the same machine, get rid of the one you don't want prior to installing the 2010.

    Use a good software removal tool like Revo Uninstaller and remove all traces of Office 365 first. Then, install Office 2010. There's no point in using a trial version of Office 365, when you already have a full version of Office 2010.

    Hello Rui,
    As always you are the one of the first to come on my rescue.
    My God, I'm completely lost trying to start using my Win 8.1, which both appearance and layout are quite different from Win7.
    I'm lucky enough to still have my other notebook (32 bits) I'm using for several years.
    Yes, you can be sure that I will count with your help as well from other helpful members of Windows Secrets.

    Regards,

    Hello Berton,

    Thanks for your opinion.

    Hello KritzX,

    Removing Office 365 using the Control Panel removal tool won't be enough? I don't have REVO Uninstaller.

    Hello Clint,

    I agree.
    Why two versions, if my 2010 (Home and Businnes) gave to me all I needed all through these years?

    It is enough, Flores. I just suggested Revo because many Loungers here (including myself), have had good luck with it. But ya, if you don't already have it, then it's okay to use the Windows Uninstaller.

    Rui,

    Thanks.

    I used Revo in the past (w/Vista or XP, don't remember) but I had some problems.
    Maybe the new versions fixed the problems I had.

    Hi KritzX.

    Maybe the cause of the problems when using the old REVO was that I tweaked too much when removing and re-installing some programs.
    Anyway, thanks for making me feel confident removing Office 2013 with the Control Panel uninstaller.
