    So I have noticed for a while there are a ton of Microsoft items that appear when I am in appzapper and other than maybe organizational chart and update notifications, I cannot recall ever interacting with these items. If you know this well, I would appreciate some help on what is safe to uninstall in terms of not messing up other microsoft apps. I have posted a screen shot of some of the unused items.

    I'm fairly certain that MS Office (even the Trail) comes with an uninstaller. Use that instead of AppZapper to uninstall Office.

    Most of those are actually components of the office applications, and you have a choice to install them when you install microsoft office, I won't know if it's safe to delete them, but it should be.
