    Office 2013 apps still showing in search after uninstall

    I Just upgraded to Office 365 Pro(which installed Office 2016 apps) , but these apps are not showing in Windows Search but instead shortcuts from Office 2013 are still showing up as Best Match in Windows Search.
    eg: Word 2013 shows up when I search for Word but Word 2016 does not show up??

    Any clues?
    I tried to rebuild my search index but still have the same issue ....

    Hi, first 2013. Suggest you install Ultrasearch (free), let it index (quick), then search for items related to Office 2013 and see what's left.
    (This is a search tool you will want to keep).

    Also try downloading Revo uninstaller, run it, and see if Office 2013 shows up.
    If the above search finds any remaining folders with exe files, you can use Revo's Forced uninstall to remove them ad related files and registry entries.

    My guess is you've still got shortcuts related to those office programs in one or other of your start menu folders. If so, the search should find them.
