    I have just unistalled MS Office 2010 and upgraded to MS Office365. Before uninstalling, I had a lot of problems with Office 2010 crashing after a recent update (KB4461522) and given that this update, and many other Office 2010 updates are still on the update history list, should I remove them them as; a) they are no longer needed as 2010 has gone and, 2) will they cause a conflict with the new Office 365?
    If they should be removed, how is this done in Windows 10? Many thanks in anticipation.

    I should have said security updates / patches, not just 'updates'

    OpenOffice, unless you "need" MSOffice

    Tried it a few times and stuff people have sent me displays with the formatting all screwed up. Has that improved at all? That's excel and word btw. To the op those shouldn't interfere with the new office install I wouldn't worry about it.

    Honestly I not sure I have not used Excel or Word from office in over decade. I use this stuff so rarely I just choice to use Openoffice instead of paying for MS office

    In your case I would too but when I invoiced for jobs I did it paperless and open office didn't work for me as when I sent them in the formatting was all screwed up and when they sent me work orders same thing. So it wasn't an option for me but that's been a few years now so who knows if it's better now.
