  1. Saving shortcuts to the "Microsoft Office" folder


    Why would winblows do this? In an effort, which is apparently equivalent to scaling Everest, to remove Microsoft Office I deleted all of my shortcuts. Why can't I just delete Office? Using the remover tool simply removes it from the shown files. I still have the entire suite on my PC. I have 365. Why would I need an outdated desktop version? Thanks for the bloat winblows.

    Modify Microsoft Office Icons/Tiles


    EDIT: only works for icons, not for tiles :/

    Ok, I just found a way but it is not really straightforward. It consists in creating a shortcut toward a homonym application for each of the Microsoft Office programs, and then deleting the homonym application and renaming the real Microsoft Office program. If you create a shortcut directly to one of the program, you will not be able to modify the icon.

    Step by step:
    1. Go in Microsoft Office folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15 for Windows 10 and Office 15)
    2. Rename EXCEL.EXE in EXCEL2.EXE, or any other application whose icon you want to edit
    3. Create a new text document (or whatever you like) on your desktop, and give it the initial name of the Office application you are working on (EXCEL.exe here)
    4. Move the fake file into the Office folder
    5. Create a shortcut toward the fake application on your desktop, and change shortcut icon (you will not be able to do it anymore after step 6)
    6. Delete the fake file in the Office folder, and give the real Office program its original name
    7. Pin your new shortcut to your Start menu

    Saving shortcuts to the "Microsoft Office" folder

    Office 2016 programs are not grouped under Microsoft Office 2016

    Hi,

    To address your concern, you can compress the view of your Microsoft Office programs inside a single folder in the Start Menu. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
    • Right-click on a blank space, click New > Folder.
    • Rename the New Folder as Microsoft Office 2016 (or any name that you want).
    • Highlight all the Microsoft Office 2016 programs.
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + X (make sure that all programs are highlighted).
    • Double-click Microsoft Office 2016 folder (the folder that you've created).
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + V.
    • Wait until all the programs are moved to the new folder.
    • Check the Start Menu if the settings are saved.

    Let us know the outcome after you perform steps above for us to assist you further.
