Can I Install Office 2007?

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, Quick Tips, Windows 10

A reader wants to know if she can install an older version of Office on Windows 10. “I have Windows 10 and an older, unopened version of Office. Can I install it?  It is Office 2007,  but it has Windows 7 with it ( it’s called “Professor Teachers Office 2007 & Windows 7″) I can’t run both 7 and 10 at the same time, can I? I don’t have an activation key; it just tells me to install it, and then play it. I don’t mean to be a pest; I just don’t know and I know that you do!”


If you did have an older version of unopened office with an activation key, you could install it on Windows 10. Any version of Office from Office 2007 on will work with Windows 10 (with the exception of Office Starter 2010).  And you’re correct in that you couldn’t run Windows 7 and 10 on the same PC without creating a dual-boot system.

But you actually don’t have a disc for Office 2007 for Windows 7. You have a piece of educational software called “Professor Teaches Windows 7 and Office 2007.”  It’s a learning software that you use in conjunction with those programs when they are installed on your PC.  Unfortunately, that won’t help you get Office on your PC.

    I have installed and regularly use Office 2003 with several computers using Windows 10. The lower limit of Office that works on Windows 10 goes much further back than Office 2007. Why Word 2003? I don’t like the ribbon interface. My customized toolbars for 2003 gives me nearly everything I need with a single click without having to find the right tab and then wade thru all sort of un-used commands to find the one I want. In Word 2003, I use Tools>Customize>Commands to modify my toolbars by dragging useless commands off the toolbar and adding commonly-used command to the toolbars. Once this was done for my main PC, I just copy (the normal template) over to the new PC and paste them into the folder after changing the name or deleting the original That truly makes it My PC not just This PC!
