Removing Office 2010 after installing Office 2016
Posted on 2016-10-15
I have just migrated from a surface 3 to a surface pro 4 using ZInstall Win Win. Moved everything really well but left me with a copy of Office Professional 2010 on the new computer that needed to be activated. Rather than do that, I purchased and downloaded Office Professional 2016. There weren't any options about removing old copies of Office so the Office 2010 was left there. The problem is that when I double-click on any of my .mdb files they are opened with Access 2010 which then goes through the whole "you need to activate etc".
1. Are there any consequences if I remove Office 2010 after installing Office 2016
2. Is there any way in Windows 10 Pro to force .mdb files to be associated with Access 2016 instead of Access 2010?
