Customer Question
Hi Pearl, I have...

Hi Pearl, I have been using Microsoft Publisher 2010 for many years, but also have Publisher 16 downloaded. If I uninstall 10, will 16 still access my old files?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Publisher?

I downloaded MO 365 this morning.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Publisher?

Nothing, because I'm chicken (also old).

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so.

Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

Yes, Microsoft Publisher 2016 is 100% backwards compatible, which means it will open all old versions of Publisher including 2010 with no problems.

You may uninstall the 2010 version, if you wish; however, it is not required.

Thank you for allowing me to help you today. My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen then submit before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Thank you,
