Selecting what you want in MS Office

Recently I added Office 07 as I wanted Word & Point. But I didn't want Groove or OneNote etc. After posting here to find out how to remove what I didn't want & recieving now reply I persisted & found out how to do it.

Control Pnl/ Programs & Features (Add/Remove Programs)/ MS Office ... then right click and select Change. Another window will open - Select Add or Remove features then click Continue. The next window shows the components of Office.
Using OneNote as an example:
Click to open them drop down menu - select Not Available then Continue.
Do this for each program you don't want to use.
Then wait as Office Reconfigures itself. All done.

Or you could've used custom install. I hope your post comes of use to someone with a similar issue who may search the forum.

Hi Schroff - I wasn't aware of custom install ... so didn't notice at the point of installation.
Can you detail this so that it can be learned.

Is it the same as Not Available option? I mean the programs I didn't want are still on my machine ... just invisible.
With custom install it sounds like they don't get installed at all ... if so this is preferable.

Yup it's the latter, I have Office 2007 not 2010 but it shouldn't be different. It's among the first choices made "Typical" or "Custom" during install. In Custom you can choose the applications to install ie. Word, Excel, etc. then comes the screen you were talking about choosing "Not available". Not available is similar but Custom install saves a few clicks.

Thanks Schfoffs,
strange as I normally always do choose 'custom' at installation of programs...somehow I missed this one.

ok ... small point of clarity ... it's not crystal clear whether using the Custom Install method prevents the programs being loaded onto the computer at all ... or whether it just simplifies the selection of 'Not Available'...which infers it's still on the machine.
