    How to remove Office 2016 w/o MS PIN?


    I installed Office 2016 on my wife's laptop. Now I want to remove it. I get a prompt to enter in my MS PIN. I don't have an MS PIN, so how do I remove Office without a PIN?

    Thanks

    Daryl

  2. 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.

    MS Office 2016 tiles in Win10 Home and Tablet Mode

    It appears that you cannot change the label of the tiles in Win10 Home when in Tablet Mode.

    This is major oversight on behalf of Microsoft.

    Even Microsoft Office 2016 when you create a shortcut (tile) for Word, Excel, and Powerpoint in Tablet mode you cannot distinguish which program is

    which from its label unless you actually hover over the tile.

    Whether the tile is in medium or small mode each tile is labeled W-Microsoft .... then the program name.

    But all you will see even in medium size is W-Microsoft.

    Why is that ?

    Even to create the tiles for these three program I had to go to the program exe and pin it to start.

    Even in ALL Programs while in tablet mode one cannot pin MS Office to start.

    MS Office Tools is listed but none of the programs are listed within Tools.

    I can't see how Microsoft neglected showing their own program in Tablet Mode.

    I am confused as are hundreds of others with the same questions and no answers.
