Can I custom install Office apps?

Select only some apps to install

With subscription and non-subscription versions of Office since 2013, you can’t custom select which Office apps you want to install. However, you can delete the shortcuts for the apps you don’t plan to use.

Tip: If you decide you want to purchase a stand-alone Office app such as Word or Outlook, you can go to the Microsoft Store and search for the stand-alone app you want to buy.

Change where Office apps are installed

Additionally, you can only install Office on the system drive where your operating system is installed. This is usually your C: drive.
