Uninstall Office 2016 or Office 365

You'll need to determine your Office installation type so you can choose the correct way to uninstall it:

    Click-to-Run is a new way to install and update Office over the Internet and it works similar to streaming video. By default, Office 365, including Office 2016 products are installed by using Click-to-Run.

    MSI, (also known as the Microsoft Windows Installer), is the traditional way of installing Office via a local installation resource.

    To determine your installation type
  1.         Start an Office application, like Word.
  2.         Click File > Account.
  3.         If Office 2016 was installed using Click-to-Run, an Update Options appears. For an MSI installation, the Update Options are installed through Windows Update only.

Before you begin, make sure that you log on to Windows with an administrator account. If you’re not sure if you have an administrator account, see how to determine your user account type in Windows.
