Microsoft Office 2010 is a version of Microsoft Office, which was released to manufacturing on 15 April 2010; it was subsequently made available through Business customers with Software Assurance on 27 April 2010, and later to retail on 15 June 2010. It includes newer PowerPoint animation effects, new splash screens, and the Ribbon interface is now available in every application. Support for Office 2010 ended on 13 October 2020.

The final build number is 14.0.4760. Many torrents and even OEMs distribute build 4734 (which is not the final RTM build), as "RTM".

Office 2010 is the last version of Microsoft Office that could run under an unmodified installation of Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows Vista SP1, Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008.

System requirements[edit | edit source]

Office 2010 is the first version to have an x64 variant, though the x64 variant has some limitations. The x86 version only officially supports Windows XP SP3 or newer, Windows Server 2003 SP2 or newer, or Windows Vista SP1 or newer, the x64 version only officially supports Windows Vista SP1 or newer, though it can be tricked to run on Windows XP SP2[1][a] and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.[2] Using Extended Kernel, this version can also theoretically run on Windows 2000, though some bugs may occur (like Office 2007). Unofficially, this is the last version of Office that supports Windows 2000.
