Did they uninstall your old version of Office before they installed the new version?

I had some of the same thoughts when I purchased 365. They say it is best to uninstall your previous version of office, so I called Microsoft accessibility, let them tandem in and do the the whole process. I have had no problems.

Subject: [jaws-users] question downloading Office 365


I currently have an old copy of Office 2010 that I installed from a CD.  I’m thinking of moving to the subscription to Office 365.  I’ve heard a couple of you mentioned cloud based office products.  If I purchase the Office 365 subscription from the Microsoft store, is it a given that I can download local copies of the Office products to run on my computer?  I’m just a bit confused on this aspect.  It seems that JAWS runs better and I’m certainly more comfortable with having local copies of Office.  Is there a reason people wouldn’t install it locally? 


Running Win10 and latest JAWS 2019.
