Many users want to know if Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, and Office 2013 are compatible with Windows 10 before upgrading to Windows 10 from earlier versions of Windows.
Microsoft has already said that most of the programs out there for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will support Windows 10 as well, many users want to confirm if their favorite programs work after upgrading to Windows 10.
Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, and Office 2013 support Windows 10
While we recommend you use the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor tool present in the Get Windows 10 app to check if your installed programs work on Windows 10 as well, users who are using older versions of Microsoft Office will be glad to know that one can install the decade-old Office 2003 on Windows 10 (version 1507) without any issues.
Yes, Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013, and the upcoming Office 2016 are fully compatible with Windows 10. This is fantastic news for millions of PC users who are still using Office 2007 and Office 2010 for a variety of reasons.
In short, if you have Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, or Office 2013 on your Windows 7/Windows 8.1 PC, you can keep your Office installation while upgrading to Windows 10 (version 1507). However, note that you must have installed the latest Office service packs.
It’s important to note here is that Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, and Office 2013 are compatible with Windows 10 version 1507 (released in July 2015). But that does not mean that these versions of Office will be compatible with a feature version of Windows 10. You might not be able to install these versions of Office (especially Office 2003 and 2007) in a future version of Windows 10.
Gabe Aul, Engineering General Manager for data and fundamentals team at Microsoft, recently shared a picture of running a 20-year-old Office for Windows 95 on Windows 10! That said, since Microsoft no longer supports those older versions of Office programs, we recommend you upgrade to a newer version of Office as early as possible.
What version of Microsoft Office you have on your PC?

I worked in Windows 7 with outlook 2007 mail, calendar ad contacts open. I scheduled a task to EXIT outlook in the early morning (outlook retains configuration). when I sit down and click on the outlook icon in the taskbar all three apps open.
This doesn’t happen in Windows 10.
Jennifer Johnson says
Just installed Windows 10.
NOW, I cannot access any Word or Office documents or software. So much for leaving everything as it was. This renders my computer not usable! Really. Is it time for an Apple?
Can you please, quickly, tell me how to access this purchased Software?!
Mike Taylor says

Why is noone answering any of the above questions?
Windows 10 + Office 2007 problem!
Ctrl + C, Ctrl + Z, Ctrl + A, Ctrl + V, Ctrl + Y, NOT WORKING !!!!
Chris Raisin says
I have windows 2010 working fine on a PC that I successfully updated to Windows 10 via the Windows “Update” process.
Another PC I could not successfully convert to Windows 10 via that method, so I had to do a FULL INSTALLATION via an image file (.iso) of Windows 10. This of course meant wiping everything from the PC.
I used my serial number from my Windows 8 disk (which I bought when it first came out) to successfully install W10 (at last!) but then I found I could not install my Office 2010 from my original disks! (It would not accept the legitimate serial number showing with th disk!
I am very frustrated by this. I refuse to go to Windows 365 because macros do not work in Excel or Outlook and this ruins many of my automation procedures.
PLEASE BRING BACK OFFICE 2010!!!!! (Even the download pages at Microsoft do not work anymore
I just typed in the product key (without being able to see it) and hit enter

UNABLE TO TWO-FINGER VERTICAL SCROLL WITH TOUCHPAD in Office 2007
I recently purchased a Windows 10 computer. I am using Office 2007 in Windows 10.
When I open a new document and make the document several pages long, I can scroll through the pages using two fingers on the touchpad. When I reach either end of the document (beginning or end, in other words), any further two-finger touchpad scrolling causes the entire Word window to bounce, indicating I’m at the end of the document. This is normal and expected.
When I open any of many documents I work with frequently (these are several dozen MB in size, hundreds of pages long and up to about 2000 pages), this vertical two-finger touchpad scroll function doesn’t work. When I first open the document, if I try to two-finger vertical scroll with the touchpad, it will scroll to the end of the first page, then Word temporarily pauses as it “repaginates” the rest of the document. When this is completed, the two-finger touchpad scrolling does NOTHING for vertical scrolling, although it can still laterally scroll. This is very frustrating and causing me to contemplate returning the computer, as it is crippling my ability to perform one of my most common activities on the computer.
I tried the same thing in Excel to see if the problem existed there also. It does.
When I open a new spreadsheet, two-finger touchpad scrolling works both vertically and horizontally, and the entire Excel window bounces when I reach the end in any direction. However, I routinely split the Excel files into planes so I can see the column and row headings constantly while editing the body. That’s when the two-finger touchpad scrolling fails.
When I split the file into two vertical panes (so the top pane can show my headings that I’ve placed in row 1, while I work with the body of the spreadsheet in the lower pane), any attempt to two-finger touchpad scroll vertically affects the top pane. Even as I’ve tried to click in the bottom pane to “select” it, two-finger vertical scrolling on the touchpad scrolls the top pane only. Horizontal scrolling, however, works.
When I split the file into four panes (to keep row 1 in constant view in the upper vertical pane, and to keep column 1 in constant view in the left-most horizontal pane), the same issues occur as with when I set only the two vertical panes, PLUS now horizontal scrolling only (and always) scrolls the left-most two panes.
Anyone know why I’m unable to two-finger touchpad vertical scroll through a Word document?
Anyone know why I’m unable to select which pane of an Excel document two-finger touchpad scrolling affects?
I upgraded to windows 10. However after upgrading access to my MS Office files were unavailable. Therefore I went back to windows 7.
Mário Pimentel says
Excel 2010 cannot open certain files after upgrading to Windows 10. This files can be opened in other PC’s running Windows 7, so they’re not corrupted. I’ve already applied the “Repair” command in the Control Panel to the Office suite but it didn’t fix the problem.

Shiveram Ethiraj says
one of my friend is using a BT mail, and I have heard him saying it is not working in his outlook 2007, since he upgraded his machine to windows 10.
Emails are absolutely fine in webmail, any guidance to fix it would be appreciated.

I have installed windows 10 pro and now my MS office 2010 will not work. I tried to reinstall using my key and it will not load. I searched for a fix but now sure what is good or bad. I think MS owes us a fix or an upgrade to a version of office that works with there great windows 10……
Jim Johnson says
My hard drive crashed so I had Win 10 installed with the replacement at the store. That meant I had to reinstall Office 2010 and it did show it as successful BUT when done installing and accepting my product code it say I can open my old files. True, but that’s all. Nothing happens when clicking on the new icon. I cannot open the individual programs like Word or Access unless it’s through the retrieved files and it will not allow new files to be created once the old files are opened. help
I have upgraded my i7 HP from win 7 to Windows 10 Tech Review. I had the computer recovered and the trial version of Win 10 uninstalled. Now I can not install Office 2010 home and student from the disc. The installation indicator bar goes 2/3 the distance and stops there.
Windows 10 ate several features I need/use in office 2010. Slowing me down, i.e. such as, using the ‘find tool” to search files, folders or the hard drive- just not working
Also, both word and pdf files used to be previewable WITHOUT opening them. Single click or scrolling over the name would let me preview the file before opening it.
Is there a fix?
kay reynolds says

my new computer does not have CD drive, how to install office -2007 Office CD into Window 10
I installed windows 10 on an intell I5 powered inspiron dell laptop running windows 7. I had office 2010 and 2013 installed on it and both worked before upgrade but failed after. I tried a reinstall of office 2010 with genuine microsoft installation disk but it failed. I rolled back windows 7.
Robert, sorry to know that Office was removed during the upgrade. I would like to what version of Office you’re using? Of course, you can go back to the previous version of Windows by using the Restore to previous version feature available under Settings.
So I lost my ms office. and start button in this upgrade to win 10, I would like to go back to 8.1. You did not do a good job of getting people prepared for this. How do i get my computer back to before your d______ win 10 upgrade.
I have a business and this screwed everything up. Not a bit happy with this.
