    I greatly dislike installing Office in general. I do a lot of image editing and testing, which makes re-installing programs like MS Office 2016 quite annoying and irritating, especially since Office likes to install OneDrive and bloat the OS.

    Is there any way to make Office 2016 portable? I only use Excel, PowerPoint, and Word.

    Just leave your host intact and test the chopping in a virtual environment.

    Can't test driver chopping in VM and I find Virtual Box very slow. There are portable Office 2016 home-brews, so I know it is possible, but those brews are out-dated.
