Default My Office apps have taken control over my Office 2007


Hi

I have a new win 10 PC which was delivered with an app called "my office". Consisting of outlook, one drive, word, excel, PP, and more. I only use the outlook. Then I have MS Office 2007 installed and from that I use word, excel etc. BUT every time I from win explore will open a document it will open in a "My Office" app. BUT I will only use my 2007 Office. Also when I use "open with word 2007" the "my Office word" open. How to stop "My Offices" word, excel etc to open?

First, if your new computer has a free or included version of Office 2016 or 2016 through the My Office app, I recommend that you use it. It is really superior to Office 2007. However, chances are that it is a trial version. In that case you want to uninstall it, then repair your Office 2007 installation.



For now, try repairing your Office 2007. That may be sufficient.





My Office is listed under Microsoft Store apps.


You can run both Office 2007 (except for Outlook) and the latest versions of Office in tandem.


"My Office" is a blanket or shell app that runs the regular Office applications. It can be uninstalled without influencing the ability of the Office desktop applications to run.


IMO, any of the following versions of Word are superior to Word 2007:
Word 2002, Word 2003, Word 2010, Word 2013, Word 2016, Word 2019, Word 365.


I purchased Office 2007 in 2006 and promptly uninstalled it. When I got Office 2010, I reinstalled Word 2007 just so I could give advice about problems people were having. I have never produced a single document using it.

Thanks Charles

I tried your repair suggestion and it didn’t help. But I found where to uninstall the individual "My offices" programs and away they went. It was Offices 365 and I don’t like to use a web based program.

Office 365 is not a web-based program but does require a regular (at least monthly) web connection. It is the regular applications installed on your computer.

If you have an Office 365 subscription, you can install the full, desktop version of Office on your computer.

However, if the only full version of Office you have is Office 2007, you need to uninstall any expired trial or limited version and then repair Office 2007 (use the original installation disc).
