Office Starter & Office - can I delete Starter
Posted on 2011-09-20
My new Dell XPS8300 came with MS Office Starter (2010). This Starter package includes Word, Excel and Office Tools. I have now installed Office Pro (2010).
Here is my question: is there any reason that I should not delete the whole Office Starter program? In other words, are there any sharred components between the two? Many of the docs I brought over from my old system were generated using Office 2003 (I think) so the Word files are .doc rather than .docx, for example. As it is now on the new PC, if I click to open a .doc file, it gets opened with the Starter version of Word. If I delete the Starter am I correct in assuming that a .doc file will get opened with the full version of Word?
