P.S. Office 2010 reached its "End of Life" in October 2020 and it has not been receiving security updates for newly discovered vulnerabilities.

You should consider either updating Office -- which won't necessarily resolve its stupidity about a missing/uninstalled browser -- or, if the budget does not permit using Microsoft, take a look at LibreOffice, a free, open-source office suite: https://www.libreoffice.org/
