    On the Installation Options tab you can see all the applications that are present in the version of Office that you have purchased. By default all Applications are all ready to install.

      If you want to prevent a particular application from installing, [for example Microsoft Office Excel] click the little black downwards facing arrow.

      Now select X Not Available and this will prevent the application from installing.

      Within each application there are separate add-ins and you also have the choice to install these or not.

      To prevent an add-in of an application from installing click the ‘+’ symbol next to the application. You should then be able to view all of the add-ins that are associated with that application.

      Next to the add-in click the little black downwards facing arrow.

      Now select X Not Available and this will prevent the add-in from installing.

      Note: Some Add-ins may have an X Not Available next to them and this cannot be changed. You will find this happens because you do not have other needed software installed on your computer such as the .NET Framework.


       Choose a File Location
       
      •   Click the File Location tab.
      •   By default Microsoft Office 2007 will install to the following location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office
