    Office restart required?

    I was just upgraded to Office 365 version 1907 by the automatic update. After installing, all my office apps tell me I must restart Office to apply my privacy changes. Unfortunately, nothing I do makes those messages go away, and I haven't been able to find anything that works by googling this. I have closed all Office apps and started them again, restarted my computer, even uninstalled Office and re-installed. As soon as I get the 1907 update, the problem comes back. I have made no changes to privacy settings and am not using an Insider build. I welcome any help!

  3. Office 365 activation error after big Win 10 update

    We appreciate your response, Keith. We suggest that you update Office 365 and see if it'll make a difference. You can simply do it by opening any Office 365 applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Here are the steps on how to do so:

    • Open Office app, then click on File.
    • Look for Account, then click on Update.
    • Once done, restart your computer.

    We're looking forward to your feedback.

  4. Office restart required?

    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.
