Add or Remove Features from Office

   Posted October 2, 2003 by David Kirk in Windows

Office is massive. You can remove or add many different components without difficulty. This tech-recipe explains how to add the photo editor.


For some reason, Microsoft does not bundle a good photo editor with Windows. The Office package contains a photo editor which is poor but better than nothing.

The following steps show the user the basic mechanism for adding or removing features from an Office installation.

This works for win2k and XP.

1. Start -> Control Panel
2. Add/Remove Programs
3. Click on Microsoft Office.
4. Click Change.
5. Click Add/Remove Features.
6. Click the “+” before Office Tools.
7. Click on the box before Microsoft Photo Editor.
8. Select Run from My Computer.
9. Click Update.
10. Office will update itself. You may need to insert your CDs.

The technique described above can be used for removing features like the office shortcut bar.
