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
  2. Use the classic uninstall method
  3. Uninstall My Office with Power Shell

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 Revo Uninstaller.

The tool is extremely efficient in removing leftover files,  folders, and/or Registry entries from unwanted programs. Besides uninstalling the program, Revo also scans for whatever trances of the respective app are left in the system.

Additionally, with the free version of Revo, you can also uninstall Windows apps or browser extensions.

If you have serious trouble with a certain program, you can go for the paid version of Revo and use the Forced Uninstall or Quick/Multiple Uninstall options.

After dealing with the unwanted program, you can always use the cleaning tools included in Revo Uninstaller, to get rid of junk elements and remove unused history files.
