During the install, Office prompts you to perform a "typical" installation vs. a "custom" installation. If you select "custom", you can pick and choose which components to install.

Once installed, you can go to "Programs and Features" as if you wanted to uninstall the program but when you highlight Office, select "Change" instead of uninstall. You will then be able to pick and choose which components to remove from, or add to, the existing installation.

Unfortunately both points don't seem to be valid. Install is a click2run installer so there is no options whatsoever. Also control panel after selecting office 2016 has only 2 options being repair or remove.

seems like it is not possible:

In Office 2013 and Office 2016 you can’t custom select which Office applications you want to install. However, you can delete shortcuts to applications you don’t plan to use.

Also, you can only install Office on the system drive where your operating system is installed. That’s usually your C: drive.

I don't have Office 2016 installed but here's a shot of my Office 2013 in Programs and Features and there is most definitely a Change option. I wonder if it's because I have the Professional version of Office? What version are you working with?

@ strollin. I have Office 2013 Professional & the "Change" only has a couple of repair options.

It seems that it must only be available in the Professional Plus version, which is what you have.
