    I just installed Microsoft Office for the Mac Home and Student 2011. I intentionally purchased this version so I would not have Outlook. Not knowing that it would install a trial version of Outlook, I must have followed a standard install versus custom install path when I installed the Office suite.

    How can I uninstall just Outlook, leaving the rest of the Office for Mac Suite (Word, Powerpoint, and Excel)? For any reason would it be best to uninstall the entire suite, and then reinstall the suite, this time being careful to uncheck any Outlook selection boxes?

    I decided to uninstall the entire Office 2011 suite using the below link:


    Then I reinstalled the suite, this time being careful to look for the "Customize" selection button. It went very smoothly. I now have my MacBook Pro with MS Office for Mac, but without Outlook.

    I believe that because office is installed as a package and not each part individually, you have no choice but to uninstall Office entirely and then re-install using the custom option. In the PC world you have the option of running install or uninstall/change, I have only see uninstall on the Mac.

    Cheers, its what I had to do, what a episode it is to uninstall it all! MS has a doc, very manual way!

    I then noticed the "customise" and just put Word, Excel, Powerpoint on
