There are 3 ways to uninstall Office Packages. This will depend if it was purchased through the Microsoft App Store or installed locally on your machine. I would recommend checking the “Program and Features”. If the application is there, then it has been installed locally. If not, then it could be via the Microsoft store. I would recommend using the “Microsoft Removal Tool” first. Then if that does not work, proceed to the Control Panel > Programs and Features.
REMOVING OFFICE DESKTOP APPS – FROM THE APP STORE
Go to Start -> Settings -> Apps > Apps & Features
Under “Apps and features” section, select search. When you type in you can see the Office packages installed.
Click the “Uninstall” button to start Uinstallation process.
NOTE: If individual applications was installed through the store, the you may need to search for example Word, Excel, click on it and select “Uninstall”.
- Click on the App Store
- Scroll through the App List for the Office app you don’t want.
- Click on the Office App to remove and select Uninstall.
- Repeat above step to uninstall any Office in the Windows Store app you don’t want.
