    How to uninstall Onenote 2016


    I have successfully uninstalled Onenote using the Power Shell. Now I want to do the same with Onenote 2016 but can't figure out how to do it. I have right clicked Onenote 2016 in the Start Menu and then chosen Uninstalled but Onenote 2016 is still there.

    Will someone please help me here?

    Thank you.

    Hi there. Open Settings app > Choose Apps > Find OneNote and click on it. You can also uninstall via the Store in your Library within the three-dot menu.

    Same thing happens if I search for Onenote 2016

    Thanks again.

    Hmm. Sounds like it's uninstalled then. Is there a tile for it? if so, unpin it. Does it show in your Start > All Apps? Does it show up in your Store Library?

    It is in Start. Onenote.exe is in c:\program files(X86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16 and it works as far as I can determine.

    Don't know how to look in Store Library.

    Again, Thanks.

    Oh so it's a part of your Office suite. You uninstalled the UWP version. Not sure if it can be uninstalled then. It's not like the previous Office where one can choose which program gets installed. I think the best you can do is hide it.

    Open the Store > Click the three-dot menu at the top right > Click on "Show all" > find OneNote. Just checked and it can't be uninstalled that way either.

    So be it then. I guess I'm stuck with it.

    Thank you for your help.

    You're welcome. I just learned something as well. Never realized that with the O365. Been using office for years and use OneNote a lot.

    When I used Office 2010 you were able to remove parts of it maybe your version is the same?

    I started out with Office 2007 and am now at 365/2016. I miss the feature we used to have that allowed us add/remove parts of Office. At least they didn't mess around with Personal XLS. :)
