How to Uninstall Microsoft Office 2011 (Mac)

So here I bring one of the best article I’ve visited so many times up until last month. It is surprising to see how many users still use old Office 2011 but again everything getting way expensive and really how many of us really need latest and the greatest ( Except all the apple share holders ūüôā )

Anyways, I’m going to copy past article entirely, because there is nothing to edit. Even though it says OS X 10.7 nothing change even for the latest OS. So all the credit goes to https://it.uib.no/ithelp/index.php?title=How_to_Uninstall_Microsoft_Office_2011_(Mac)&oldid=5075

Just a few cent from me, before do anything try to do time machine backup and make sure you don’t have anything sitting in the trash that you need again. Yes backup takes time but it take even longer if you have to reload system!!

  1. Start Finder, go to Applications and delete the folder Microsoft Office 2011.
