If you – like me – want to have a customized / minimalized installation of Office 2016, read on
The trick is to use Microsoft Office ProPlus Install Toolkit,
At the left bottom choose: Tools –> Install Toolkit
Download and install the tool, and ofcourse run it
From the start screen of the application, select: Manage your local Office 365 ProPlus installation
Under Products, select 32 or 64 bits and yes/no for Project and Visio
Under download, select current (for latest stable release)
On updates, enable
Under options, enable Display Level
On local, choose install
To disable animations (causing a little delay) in Microsoft Excel 2013, there are two possiblities.
You could either Disable hardware graphics acceleration, but this I cannot recommend.
The other option is to make a change in the registery. this can easily be done by saving the following in a .reg file
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
It`s a good habit to clean up your computer once in a while. Programs you use on a daily base, like Microsoft Outlook tend to get fullier every day. A periodic Microsoft Outlook cleanup, for the inbox, directories aswel as agenda, task list and contact, brings back speed and harddisk space.
For this task I can recommend Automatic Outlook Duplicate Remover.
The steps are easy, but first make a backup of your Outlook PST file(s).
Next download and run Automatic Outlook Duplicate Remover.
I also recommend it to manually cleanup by following this Microsoft post: Reduce the size of Outlook Data Files (.pst and .ost)
The last step is compression, to squeeze out some extra harddisk space. I used KB289987 for this.
This guide describes how to back up your Microsoft Outlook 2010 email accounts (excluding your emails).
