What to do if we can’t uninstall Office

  • When the installation process is not completed generating an error and leaving the program not working
  • If Office is only partially installed without the possibility of reinstalling it
  • When it is not possible to remove a previously installed version of Office because the installation files are corrupt
  • In the event of problems caused by a previous unsuccessful installation attempt
  • When it is impossible to uninstall Office using the methods described above

How to uninstall Microsoft Office with the Microsoft tool?

In order to use the troubleshooting tool, we need to download it to the PC. First of all, however, we must identify which version of Office is installed on the PC.

If we know the version used we continue otherwise we read the guide → which version of Office is installed on the PC.

Important: The troubleshooter does not allow you to uninstall a single app included in the Office installation such as Word or Excel. A single app can only be uninstalled if it was purchased as a standalone version.
Let’s see how to proceed.

Let’s go to the Office support page.

Above Option 1 – Uninstall Office with the Control Panel we select the version of Office that we want to uninstall ( 201620132010, or 2007 ).
In the Option 1 – Uninstall Microsoft Office with Control Panel section, click on the version of Office installed that we want to uninstall ( 201620132010, or 2007 ).
Now in the Option 2 – Completely Uninstall Office section with the Quick Troubleshooterwe click Download.
After a few moments, a file will be downloaded to your computer.
We click on the file we downloaded to run it and follow the instructions on the screen.
At the end of the procedure, we restart the PC.

Uninstall Office manually

If we have not been able to uninstall Office using Microsoft’s troubleshooter, we can try uninstalling it manually.
On the Office support page, we follow the instructions described in the Option 3 – Uninstall Office manually section.
