Which Versions of Office are Compatible with Windows 10?

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s latest version of the Windows operating system. When it was released in 2015, Windows 7 and 8.1 users were offered free upgrades. Microsoft also tested Windows 10 compatibility with different versions of Office.

Here’s a compatibility chart to help you work out if your version of Office is supported on Windows 10:

Windows 10 Onwards

According to Microsoft’s website: Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016, Office 2019 and Office 365 are all compatible with Windows 10. The one exception is “Office Starter 2010, which is not supported.

Glitches, however, have been reported by Office 2010 users after upgrading their operating systems from Windows 7/8.1 to Windows 10. These include:

  • Being unable to find Office 2010 or Office 2010 applications that had previously already been installed on computers
  • Being unable to find or open saved documents in Office 2010 applications, including ones pinned to the Windows Start menu

If you get a message during your Windows 10 installation saying your Office 2010 is not compatible, you can try uninstalling it and then doing a fresh reinstallation after.

To improve compatibility, make sure you also always upgrade your Office service packs to the latest versions.

Older Versions Before Office 2010

Older versions of Office haven’t been tested by Microsoft for compatibility with Windows 10, however, Office 2007 should still run on Windows 10.

Other older versions (Office 2000, XP, 2003) are not supported but may still work in compatibility mode. This allows you to set your Windows 10 operating system settings to those similar to an older version, such as Windows 7 or 8.1. To change your compatibility settings on Windows 10, see this handy guide.

Some users testing Office 2000, however, have found they receive an Error 1904 message when installing, saying it cannot be registered.

Keep in mind also that as Microsoft continues releasing upgrades and new versions of its products, older software programs will likely stop being supported. Users are therefore advised to take advantage of opportunities to upgrade to the latest versions.
