Windows 7: Office 10 Partition

Office 10 Partition

Just got a new Lenovo ThinkPad Edge (14) which, like all recent notebooks, comes with Office 10 startup pre-loaded. If I activate it, will the partition go away, freeing up whatever is left after the program loads? If I don't decide to activate, is there a way to get rid of the partition without downloading (buying?) a partition manger?

Thanks,

Duane

Why a screenshot?

As I said in my first post, I have a new notebook (Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14) that has a Microsoft Office 10 partition on the hard drive. Every time I try to use my MS Office 2007 (because my students--I'm a Ph.D. Professor on the Internet-- don't have Office 10 and I don't want to upgrade until the major bugs are fixed--been computing since 1966) I get Office 10 instead. What I want to do now is get rid of Office 10 starter edition and free up the disk space it takes.

Instead of a screen shot, just imagine a hard drive with Win 7, a Win 7 recovery partition, and Office 10 starter edition.

All I want is a computer with Win 7 and the Win7 recovery partition. Let's not make this harder than it has to be.

I think you're talking about the Q: drive that Office 2010 Starter creates. The Q: drive is a pointer to a virtual filesystem that Office Starter accesses, it does not consume any extra space on your system.

Hi, Duane.

There are no "major" bugs in Office 2010. Perhaps a bit of a learning curve as related to some of the ways one is used to doing things in Office 2007 but, other than that, Office 2010 is much more versatile.

I can understand if you have students "stuck" on Office 2007 but, at current student pricing, it would be best to move up.

I hope I didn't. If I did, I apologize.
