How to Uninstall Office from a PC

The following steps describe how to uninstall Office products on a PC (laptop, desktop, or 2-in-1).

 Tip: Uninstalling Office only removes the Office applications from your computer, it doesn't remove any files, documents, or workbooks you created using the apps.

Option 1 - Uninstall Office from the Control Panel

  1. Open the Control Panel.

    Tip: If you installed the Office apps as part of a suite, such as Office Home and Student or Office 365, search for the suite name. For stand-alone apps search by the app name, such as Project or Visio.

    In most cases you can't uninstall an individual app if it's included in your Office suite. The only way to uninstall an individual app is if you purchased it as a stand-alone app.

    How you open the Control Panel depends on your version of Windows.

    Windows 10

    1. In the search box on the task bar, type control panel, then select Control Panel.

    2. Select Programs > Programs and Features, then right-click your Microsoft Office product, and choose Uninstall.

    Windows 8.1 or 8

    1. Right-click the Start button Windows Start button in Windows 8 and Windows 10 (lower-left corner), and choose Control Panel.

    2. Select Programs and Features, then right-click your Office product, and choose Uninstall.

    Windows 7

    1. Click Start > Control Panel.

    2. Click Programs > Programs and Features.

    3. Right-click the Office application you want to remove, and then click Uninstall.
