Hi

I want to install a version of Office 64 bit on my old computer which has Office 2019 already installed. I haven't used my Offie 365 yet. Should I use this?
What is the best way to install a 64 bit version? Do I need to uninstall Office 32 bit first?
Thanks

Yes, you should uninstall your existing installation using option 2 from https://support.office.com/en-us/article/uninstall-office-from-a-pc-9dd49b83-264a-477a-8fcc-2fdf5dbf61d8, then proceed to install O365 which now default to 64-bit.

I share some more link with Daniel suggestions:

If you already installed the 32-bit version, but want to install the 64-bit version instead (or vice versa), you must uninstall the version you don't want before installing the version you do want.
