How to Uninstall Open Office

Monday, October 24th, 2011 by | Filed Under: OpenOffice

Wayne in North Carolina asks:

How do I uninstall Open Office?

Hello Wayne, and thank you for the great question. You’ll be glad to know it is very easy to uninstall Open Office from your computer and it only takes a few minutes.

Click the Start button in the lower left corner, and then click Control Panel. Click the Uninstall a Program link below Programs.

Click Uninstall a Program below Programs and Features.

Find Open Office in the list of programs and click it one time to select it. Click the Uninstall link at the top of the screen.

Click Yes when you are asked if you are sure you want to uninstall Open Office. When the User Account Control dialog box opens, click Yes.

Open Office will start to uninstall from your computer. This may take a few minutes to complete. There will be a progress bar showing you the time remaining.  When the dialog box disappears, Open Office is completely uninstalled from your computer.

We hope this tip has been helpful for you.

    I’ve tried the above method, but it then gives me a pop-up that reads: ‘Do you want to have the following program to update software on this computer? Openofficeorg33.msi’. It doesn’t matter if you click yes or no, it then simply… doesn’t nothing. And you’re back to square one, without the programme being uninstalled. It’s like it’s designed to PREVENT you from uninstalling this programme. I want it off my machine, but it won’t let me. Now what??

    Good information, but another question. When I installed Open Source, it converted all my MSWord docs to Open Source. If I uninstall Open Source, will it affect those docs?

    It worked and all my word documents are back just in time to finish my essay.
    Thanks you’re awesome!
