    I bought a HP Pavilion Desktop a year ago running Windows 10 with 8GB of RAM and a 64 bit OS. The licence for Office is about to expire. I now need to download a new one. The MS Office that's currently on the pc is 32 bit. My computer is running a 64 bit OS. I only use Word and Excel (no big complex files - just very basic stuff) and I'm a home user.
    Should I install the 64 bit version or the 32 bit?

    it wont make a whole pile of difference. The 64bit should (in theory) be a little bit faster

    Thanks JohnJay. I meant to say that I have noticed in recent weeks that Word has slowed down. I might sometimes have to wait 6 to 10 seconds for a file to open or close and a message appears saying Word is not responding but then it does. So I'll download the 64 bit version.
