Hello! I have a laptop Win7Pro 64bit with Office 2013 on it all updates applied. I want to uninstall 2013 and install 2010. Since it is a downgrade, do I need to do any specific things like delete any directories manually after uninstalling 2013 to prevent any problems with a 2010 install after? Thanks!

You can directly uninstall 2013 office and remove all the directories and install 2010 office. Use add remove feature to remove 2013 office.

Why would you want to downgrade?

Hi Sekar, thanks for the help! So uninstall, remove whatever is leftover in Program Files, and that should be all the cleaning I need to do before installing 2010?

A user wants to, so I am going to let them rather than deal with their complaining

Maybe they use PivotTables or PivotCharts, which were dropped in 2013.

*shrugs* I will upgrade them to whatever is current when support ends for 2010 so I can truthfully tell them it is not possible to continue

Also dropped in 2013 (and 2016/365) was Picture Manager, although the 2010 version of it can be installed (free!) in 2013 and 2016/365:

I'm using Office 2016 and Excel certainly has PivotTables and PivotCharts
