Hi there, hope this post is in the right spot. Well, I have just installed MS Office 2011 (OS X Lion, Imac 27 inch mid 2011). The installer did not give the opportunity to choose the programs to be installed and, considering the fact that I just want Excel and Word, what should I do to uninstall all other programs (Outlook, Messenger, Power Point and Document Connection) ? Thanks in advance, LBM

You must have missed it then because the Office 2011 installer very definitely gives you the choice of a "custom" install. If you didn't select the custom installation it will install everything.

As far as I know, there is no way as there is with the Windows version to separately uninstall Office apps or to even add them once the program has been installed. I believe you will have to remove everything and reinstall only those apps you need. (Unless someone else has a better method.)

EDIT: Also moved this thread to the correct forum and clarified your title.

A lot of work. For what it is worth just ignore them. Drag Word and Excel icons to the Dock and use from there.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
