Generally no. Uninstalling removes most personalization settings. Outlook PST will retain folder structures. Some things may stay but not everything.

If you export the registry of the following location prior to uninstall of Office 2010, you can restore the list of recent documents after you import the exported registry after you do a reinstall.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel\File MRU

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\PowerPoint\File MRU

Hi Jackie Man.
Thanks for the very good information.
I probably will not be editing the registry for the due to the nature of this particular user... But thank you.

A few weeks back, I quickly skimmed an article that I thought mentioned office user or recent information is kept in a particular file or set of files/folder.  That would be my best option if not...then I'll simply re-install...

There are more components to Pro Plus, so I would uninstall Pro Plus, restart and then install Pro.

That would be normal because the two suites are very close.
