If you meant Office 2010 (you said Office 10), the answer is yes. They co-exist, and you can start both versions. Obviously, only one version will be set as default, the other version you will have to start manually and open files from there.

It happens often users with older Office versions install Office 365 for evaluation purposes. After deciding to not move along, they just uninstall Office 365 and continue with their "old" Office (though sometimes it needs a repair run before it functions properly again).

Other MS application will work except Outlook. You can only use the single MS outlook version, so that mean that modifying the 2010 installation to make MS outlook unavailable. The Office365 components will be the defaults.

I have seen most of the cases end up with uninstalling Office 2010 as this cause many issues if you use outlook.

Do you need to? Yes you can do it, except for Outlook (as noted).  

But Office 365 (version 2016) does everything Office 2010 can do and more. Further, associations easily get confused. Just use the one version.

Thank you all.  I got the answer.  Pity about Outlook and the other possible problems.   Unfortunately, I have to keep Access 2010.
