- You might have noticed that the Office app comes preinstalled with Windows 10 on your PC.

A great number of Windows 10 users reported that they see the Office app in their system just after a fresh OS installation, although they did not request it.
The Office app offers a good insight into your current status considering Office apps, including OneDrive. Of course, it comes preinstalled and we can safely say that it’s a significant piece of Microsoft’s pro-Office marketing.
But, by all means, users should be able to uninstall it if they deem it excessive or unnecessary. So we’re going to show you how to successfully deal with the Office app.
How do I uninstall the Office app from Windows 10?
1. Use a dedicated uninstall tool
Note that some users stated that, even after they managed to uninstall the Office app, it kept reappearing. So to make sure that all the files related to the app are deleted, we recommend using a dedicated uninstaller such as CCleaner.
The tool is extremely efficient in removing leftover files, folders, and/or Registry entries from unwanted programs. Besides uninstalling the program, CCleaner also scans for whatever trances of the respective app are left in the system.
Moreover, it can also remove plugins and it is able to completely uninstall stubborn/malicious software that you would normally struggle to get rid of.
2. Use the classic uninstall method
- Open Start.
- Look for Office in the Programs list.
- Right-click on Office and click Uninstall.
- Alternatively, you can open Settings > Apps > Apps and features. Look for Office, expand it and click Uninstall.
This is the classic and easiest way to uninstall any program, provided that you do not encounter any errors.
3. Uninstall Office with PowerShell
- Right-click on Start and open PowerShell (Admin).
- In the command line, copy-paste the following command and press Enter.
Get-AppxPackage *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage
- After it’s done, restart your PC and look for changes.
This should do it. There’s another way to clear all bloatware from your Windows 10 machine, and we explained it in this article. Make sure to give it a look.
