How to have Excel 2010 & Excel 2016 both installed, but Excel 2010 as default?

I have Excel 2010 & Excel 2016 both installed, but I need Excel 2010 as the default when I work with a file. I am using 2010 daily, but I am also evaluating Excel 2016. I am using Windows 7.

you can do it by changing file association of xls, xlsx, ... extensions in Windows 7 to Excel 2010.
Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button. ...
Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
Click the file type or protocol that you want the program to act as the default for.
Click Change program.

I am using Office 2016. Everything you can do in Excel 2010 you can do in Excel 2016.

Set Office 2016 as default, only run Office 2010 if you need it and then uninstall Office 2010.
