    Installing a clean 1709 I now have "Get Office" and "My Office" APP's listed in the Start Menu.
    Clicking on "Get Office" does nothing unless I uninstall "My Office", in wich case clicking on "Get Office" will
    reinstall "My Office". "Get Office" cannot be uninstalled ... Have gone through clean install twice now
    starting with 16299.15 and by the time I get to 16299.64 this what I get. How do I get rid of this damn
    "Get Office" Ghost?

    Hello Win7ine, :)

    You should be able to uninstall "Get Office" by running the command below in PowerShell.

    Get-AppxPackage *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage

    What does PowerShell report when you run the command?

    It seems you're not the only one with this issue.

    Nothing, executes and nothing, stays mute.

    Same for me, I’ve even tried CCleaner & Get Office isn’t listed but My Office is.

    Did you ever fix this Bastet? I started another thread but found this one. Tonight it got worse as get office updated app via the store. Now ‘get office’ is gone but we have two ‘my office’ entries in our start menu which looks a bit lousy. One opens the app, the other does nothing if you click on it and can’t be uninstalled
