MS Office


I have to upgrade users from 32bit office to 64bit office.

I wanted to know if there is a way to transfer all of the office settings, such as Outlook signature, cached email address, recent Excel and Word file ect.

This way, since I will probably have to uninstall office-32bit and install office-64bit.All of the users office settings wont be gone and everyone will have to start from scratch.

Thank you

If you simply uninstall Office 2016 32-bit, restart, and install it again, most of the settings are retained. Enough that I did not notice anything missing. And I have done this several times.

So if you uninstall Office 32-bit and install Office 64-bit, the settings should also be retained.  Try a couple of test installs.
