  1. How to remove an account from Office applications


    Hello. At work I am logged in for all office applications (Excel, Word, etc) with my company's Microsoft 365 account. At one point I logged in with my home account and it was memorized by Office. Now, all my applications carry both accounts, so I can switch between the two. But I do not have any plans to switch or use my home account at work. How can I delete it? Windows version 21H1 if needed. Excel for Microsoft 365.

    :)

    Remove account

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

  3. Can't remove pinned office applications

    My laptop is a Dell Precision 7510, running Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprice 64bit (10.0.15063 Build 15063) and Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus (1701 Build 7766.2092).

    My problem is, that beside some useful apps on my taskbar, office has also pinned Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I would like to remove these 3 pinned apps. When unpinning them, they actually disappear, but after next restart (or restart of explorer.exe) they reaper as if nothing had happened.

    I have tried following this "guide":
    Can't unpin a program from the taskbar

    I have seen the above suggestion posted on several sites, but unfortunately it doesn't help in my case.

    When executing the script (or preforming the steps manually) all is removed, but after explorer.exe restart below icons always reaper:

    • File Explorer
    • Internet Explorer
    • Outlook 2016
    • PowerPoint 2016
    • Word 2016
    • Excel 2016

    Other apps pinned at the time is removed as intended.

    Does anyone have a suggestion to how I can remove these unwanted office apps from my taskbar? And why do above list or apps reapear after deleting them from both the %APPDATA% folder and REGEDIT?

    Thanks in advance.
