    Microsoft Office and other 3rd party software - Not working since clean windows 10 done.


    I did a clean installation of windows, as my laptop began freezing. My personal files are all under windows.old, but MS Office and other programs I had installed over the years do not work. I do not have disc for MS Office, but had a registered version installed a few years ago. The same goes for my other programs. Is there a way to get these apps to work?

    :)

    Will 3rd party themes work with windows 10?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern and I’ll be glad to assist you.

    I suggest you to run the program in compatible mode during installation and check.

    Although Windows 10 will preserve your personal files (documents, music, pictures, videos, downloads, favorites, contacts, applications etc. (i.e. Microsoft Office, Adobe applications etc.), games and settings (i.e. passwords, custom dictionary, application
    settings). It is best you contact the software developer to find out about support for Windows 10.

    Here is a link for reference:
