    downgrading or upgrading the OP says something different than the title.

    ok thanks for being more clear although I am sorry I cannot help just wanted to clarify for people who can and if you don't mind me asking why downgrade? My theory is there is probably a Windows 10 version you have which is obviously not compatible if a "Windows 10 version" is a thing.
    EDIT: or that ^ similar to my theory lol

    Microsoft Office 2016 works on Windows 7 SP1 and up, so it should work just fine on Windows 8.1.
