    Hey guys,

    I'm new to OS X (or now we should say macOS) and I have a couple of questions that I did not found answers to (sufficient ones). Thanks for help! and sorry for my English :)

    1) Since I have a school pre-paid MS Office, I don't want Pages, Numbers and Keynote, in fact I've never opened them, because of installing MS Office apps. How can I uninstall them? And/or is it safe?

    2) If I uninstall them, I've read that App Store will download them again and again. How to stop this, please?

    I hope that you will understand my question, my English is far from being perfect :)

    Thanks again and have a nice day!

    Drag them from the Applications folder to the Trash. This will do no damage.

    The App Store will not download them automatically.

    I have only 128GB SSD and the extra free space would be nice. Plus I will never use them at all.
