I get that Office, Outlook and all that fancy stuff are all wrapped up together with OneNote, Contact Manager and things like that. But truly, I just want the plain vanilla version. Is that possible? I see they sell it but it is $$$$ and I have no idea what it includes. Does it try to download Skype for Business, Publisher, and all those other unwanted updates even though you clicked "not installed" when you installed Office? ELI5 -> WHY? is there no MS fixit for Office? The only option is to repair via Control Panel and somehow my installation is corrupted so it just opens and closes and repair doesn't run. The MS web page itself says use Control Panel or reinstall. That's it. Either / Or Their product is so complex, convoluted that they can't even figure out a repair option for it? So yes, I'd like a separate version of Outlook with a side order of Excel thrown in please.
