How to uninstall Office 2013 properly

It is easy to install software and try it out, so why isn't it just as easy to uninstall software? Uninstallers rarely perform a complete removal of software and there are often files and folders remaining, registry entries and so on. It really shouldn't be that hard. If you have Office 2013 or Office 365 on your computer and want to remove it, what is the best way to do it?

If you think that removing Office 2013/365 is easy, you would be wrong and there are multiple steps involved and some of them are quite complicated. Fortunately, Microsoft provides a removal tool that can erase all traces of Office from your Windows PC.

Go to this support page at the Microsoft website and click the Fix it button at the top of the page. It downloads a file and saves it to disk. It can then be run from the Downloads folder.
