    MS Office has never been a freebie. It could not have "come with" Windows 10.

    You find it in Programs and Features ?
    Would you show us the full name that listed in Programs and Features, or a screenshot ?

    tommo probably meant Get Office Apps or link to download and try Office for 30 days.

    tommo are you sure you need Office?

    Thanks Guys,I have uninstalled the "Get office" App,since you say Office does not come with Win 10 could it have been pre-installed on the HP Pavillion desktop PC? I didn't notice it 'cos I upgraded immediately to Win 10 from 8.1.It is in the Progs list, Microsoft Office,installed 20/07/2015, 593MB,version 15.0.4641.1005.If I try to open it from the start menu it won't open but gives me the option to try,buy or activate with product key which I don't have.Can I safely uninstall it without breaking anything?

    Yes. It is safe to uninstall.
    It is just a trial version, if you have no use for Microsoft Office, then get rid of it.

    Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web

    Office Online - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A Free Microsoft Office: Is Office Online Worth Using?

    There actually is an Office Online that is lightweight and completely free. I don't use it because I have a subscription to Office 365; thus, I have never explored it.

    The third link above is to "How To Geeks" and is a review of the lightweight online suite. Very interesting, to say the least.
