my trial period is over and I can't afford to pay for microsoft office, so I would like to install OPEN OFFICE ... at the same time, I want to uninstall microsoft office. 

 

can someone help me get this done? I have microsoft on my ssd and it's taking up room I could use for something else.

Hi,

 

Did you try Control Panel > Programs and Features?

yes, I did, but it's not in the list of installed programs

 

not sure if it would be listed under something else. I don't see office, microsoft office, or anything of that nature

What version of Office are you using? You might try reinstalling. Then uninstall through control panel. After removing rerun the cleanup tool from above.

I think that I've figured it out, I'm on Win10 ... I just go to the 'aps' and right click and select uninstall ... they are gone

Good job. Didn’t even think about it being an app.

thanks, it didn't work with that link you provided and to be truthful, I was right-clicking on the 'app' in the left hand column above the start button to see if I could view it's properties ... and then I noticed the 'uninstall' button. thought I'd try it. who knew? right?

 

thanks for your help friends!
