Disable, uninstall or remove Get Office app notification in Windows 10

Windows 10 users who do not have Microsoft Office installed on their computers are likely to see Get Office notifications on their system. Get Office is an app that periodically displays advertisements of Microsoft Office on your Windows 10 computer. It displays pop out notifications near the taskbar system tray, as well as displays entries in the Action & Notifications Center. Its job is to urge users to try Office 365 for 1 month. After a time period of one month users have to pay at least $7 per month to keep using the Office app.

Whenever you use your PC, you will get a notification from the “Get Office” app. This has been made as default in Windows 10. The problem doesn’t end here. “Get Office”, makes use of the Action Center to display the notification message frequently which is quite annoying for the users.

If this irritates you, you can disable and remove Get Office notification in Windows 10. This is how you can do it.

Disable Get Office notifications in Windows 10

The best option you can adopt here to stop Get Office app from displaying the notification is by disabling it. Please note that by disabling the app you are actually not removing the app from the system, it is just you won’t see the notification messages again in future.

So, here are the steps you need to follow:

Open Start menu and click on Settings. Select System settings in the Settings page. Under Notifications and action settings search for Get Office app and move its slider to the Off position.

This will turn off the notifications.

Uninstall or Remove Get Office app completely from Windows 10

If you think disabling the Get Office app notification is not the best approach and you want to remove the Get Office app completely from the system, then you have to follow a lengthy procedure for this.

Uninstalling the Get Office app from the system is not as simple as it seems to be. “Uninstall” will not solve the issue, as after uninstalling it will automatically install itself after a restart.

So to completely remove the app from the system you have to run a command in PowerShell in order to remove the app package in the system so that it doesn’t automatically install itself again after the uninstall.

Here are the steps you need to follow:

First of all, uninstall the application from the system, but going into the Start Menu, right clicking on the app and then selecting Uninstall.

uninstall get office

Then type “PowerShell” in the search bar and then from the search result select “Windows PowerShell” and choose “Run As Administrator”

Copy the following command and paste it into the console and hit Enter:

Get-AppxPackage|? name -like MicrosoftOfficeHub|remove-appxpackage

Restart your PC

You will have successfully uninstalled the app.
