    Office 2016 - Uninstall Individual Programs?

    I've just replaced Office 2010 with Office 2016. Office 2010 had an option to selectively install individual Office components but I can't find a way of doing this in Office 2016. Has anyone found a way of selectively configuring Office 2016 to remove some of the bloatware I don't need (e.g. Skype for Business)?

    Would the Office 2016 Deployment Tool allow you to do this? See the last item under Key tasks in the following article:

    It looks to me like it is possible but not recommended. Lower down in the reference article there are commands for excluding certain components.
