Can I safely uninstall Office 2010 after installing Office 2013

I have recently installed Office 2013 via my Office 365 account. It is all configured and working well.

Is it safe for me to uninstall Office 2010. I believe that Office 2013 and later runs in App-V.

Is that correct?

Yes you can uninstall office 2010.  You could have uninstalled it before you installed office 2013.

Hi Roy,

According to Microsoft's site, Office 365 runs in a virtual space by using their "Click to Run" system.  As such, Office 2010 can be kept or removed without issue.  Certainly, if disk space is running low, freeing up half a gig or more is worth quite a bit.

However, it might be worthwhile keeping it around just in case you come across some incompatibility in the new environment that does not exist with 2010.
