If I remember correctly, you can use the downloadable Click2Run (C2R) executable from Microsoft which will simply install the bog standard version.

 

However I think if you want to customise it, the only way is using the XML files provided. They can be customised to install the features you want, download updates, etc.

the answer file is by default config.xml but change the name to what you need

 

this cover both office 2010 and also office 2010 the other post what I posted covers newer versions


"Ensure you select all the text below and copy to a word processor. Paste all the code and select "Save As...". Name the file "config.xml" without the quotations. You will need to specify the location of the configuration file by using "setup.exe /config [path to file]". This can also be used in a batch file to simplify this process. More information can be found"

Because most users aren't power-users. They just want to install the application and use them. C2R makes this a pretty seamless process. The options are still there, you can customize the config to your liking, which requires a tad more work than before, but again that is geared towards power users.

And that has been true of C2R since it launched (with Office 2013).  C2R is not new - it dates back to 2013.  Look at merely my first post when I referred to it - and it is not even unique to Office.  It's in practically any product that can be custom-installed - from Office to Visual Studio to *Windows* - in fact, it launched in Office and Windows first..  C2R does not require a giant-economy-sized installer - a floppy-disk will do.  In fact, installers can be e-mailed.  And don't even get me *started* on Azure and C2R.

      Microsoft to release a new perpetual license version of Office next year
      by Rich Woods



      Three years ago at Ignite, Microsoft announced Office 2019, its latest version of Office that can be purchased on a perpetual license, meaning that you own it forever. Now here we are, three years later, and it's being announced that there's a new version on the way.

      Some speculated three years ago that Office 2019 was to be the last perpetual license version of the product, with Microsoft's push to get users onto Office 365 (now Microsoft 365), its subscription-based licensing model. Microsoft was always careful not to confirm this though, always saying that it would gauge the market. If businesses still don't want to move to Microsoft 365, then the Redmond firm will keep churning out new versions of Office.

      All the company said is that this new version will be available for Windows and Mac, but it didn't say the name of the product. Based on what we've seen, it will likely be called Office 2022.

      Microsoft also talked up its next versions of server products, like Exchange Server. The company is recommending that those on Exchange Server 2013 or 2016 start making plans to upgrade to Exchange Server 2019, promising that that's the last major upgrade they'll ever need to do. The next version will support in-place upgrades from Exchange Server 2019 for at least two years.

      SoftMaker FreeOffice 2018 Rev 1.0.4890
      by Razvan Serea



      SoftMaker FreeOffice is a powerful, easy-to-use, modern, lightning-fast office suite for Windows. After using it, you will agree that it is the best free alternative to Microsoft Office. FreeOffice is a complete office suite with a word processor, a spreadsheet application and a presentation program – all compatible with their counterparts in Microsoft Office. What's the catch? There is none. Simply download it for free and use it for as long as you want. Millions of people are using it every day and enjoy this great free office suite. FreeOffice 2018 is free to use at home and for business.

      SoftMaker FreeOffice is a complete office suite:



      TextMaker - The powerful word processor FreeOffice TextMaker combines ease of use with a huge range of features that let you create beautiful documents with ease. Numerous new template catalogs and drop-down elements take the work out of formatting text, tables and pictures.



      PlanMaker - FreeOffice PlanMaker lets you create calculations, worksheets and charts of any complexity effortlessly. With more than 350 functions at your disposal, you can quickly solve even the most intricate calculations and make sound decisions based on solid results.



      Presentations - FreeOffice Presentations is a powerful tool for creating impressive presentations. Combine text, images, tables and artwork in your slides and put them in motion with a vast range of breathtaking animations and slide transitions using OpenGL graphics acceleration.

      What's new in FreeOffice 2018:

      Compatibility without compromises: Now for the first time, the FreeOffice version for 2018 features complete support of the Microsoft file formats DOCX, XLSX and PPTX. Files with these extensions can now be not only opened, but also saved. Exchanging files with Microsoft Office users is therefore possible without prior conversion.

      Ribbons or classic menus: SoftMaker FreeOffice 2018 also offers a refined user experience: the completely redesigned user interface allows users to work with either modern ribbons or classic menus and toolbars. An especially practical feature is that even in ribbon mode, users can access the classic menu entries via a “hamburger” menu. This makes it easier for users to migrate to ribbons.

      Both with classic toolbars and in ribbon mode, users have access to numerous new dropdown elements and template catalogues that simplify the creation of extensive documents. For example, with a few clicks, complex numbered lists and headers or footers can be added in TextMaker, and a large variety of cell templates can be applied in PlanMaker.

      Optimized for touchscreens: If you use a computer with a touchscreen, you can now switch to touch mode with larger icons and increased spacing between user-interface elements. This new touch mode is available both with ribbons and with the classic menu-based user interface.

      In addition, the free Office suite covers the full functionality of a professional Office suite:

      The word processor FreeOffice TextMaker 2018 lets users create documents of any complexity. Extensive DTP capabilities allow you to insert images and graphics, headers, footers, tables and more. Aside from seamless DOCX support, the application offers true-to-original handling of numerous other file formats. It opens documents saved in the old Microsoft format DOC just as loss-free as ODT files which are used by LibreOffice and OpenOffice. The word processor comes with a powerful PDF export as well as with an EPUB export function, which creates complete e-books with just a few clicks.

      The spreadsheet application FreeOffice PlanMaker 2018 covers all the functionality needed to create calculations, tables, and charts. Even power user features, such as pivot tables or conditional formatting, are always compatible with Microsoft Excel 2016, thanks to the seamless support of Excel’s XLSX file format.

      The presentation application FreeOffice Presentations 2018 is now even more compatible with PowerPoint than its predecessor. It not only supports the opening and saving of the PPTX files, but it also comes with a completely revised master slide concept. Users can now create any number of slide layouts, which in turn can be populated with any number of placeholders—just like Microsoft’s forpurchase counterpart. Using animations and slide transitions based on OpenGL, the new FreeOffice Presentations also provides the user with a variety of spectacular effects that turn presentations into real eye-catchers.

      Monthly Office Insiders Android build adds option to sync multiple calendars with Outlook
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Microsoft has released a new monthly Office Insiders build for Android that adds a couple of new features to Outlook. Today’s release only brings additions to Outlook and is light on features. It is not clear if there will be another build later this month that add more feature to the other apps that are part of the productivity suite.

      The main Outlook feature today is the ability to sync events between multiple calendars on users’ Android phones. The app is adding what the company calls “two-way calendar sync” and lets users view and edit events that are created on other calendar apps on the users’ device. These calendars include the likes of Samsung Calendar, Google Calendar, and more. The two-way sync works for Microsoft 365, Office 365 – by which the firm likely means consumer subscriptions – and Outlook.com accounts.

      Another feature listed as part of today’s update is the ability to set custom notification actions, a feature that was spotted last week and one that is already also rolling out to all users. The feature lets users customize the quick actions that appear on notifications, choose between five options that include Delete, Archive, Mark Read, Flag, and Read & archive. Users can also choose to remove the additional quick actions, but the Reply action cannot be customized or removed.

      Lastly, another nifty addition in today’s release is for Outlook to remind users to download the Teams app when users create an online meeting that required Teams.

      LibreOffice 7.0.1
      by Razvan Serea



      LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can also get involved!

      Features:

      Writer is the word processor inside LibreOffice. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book with tables of contents, embedded illustrations, bibliographies and diagrams. The while-you-type auto-completion, auto-formatting and automatic spelling checking make difficult tasks easy (but are easy to disable if you prefer). Writer is powerful enough to tackle desktop publishing tasks such as creating multi-column newsletters and brochures. The only limit is your imagination.

      Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you're weighing the alternatives. Analyze your data with Calc and then use it to present your final output. Charts and analysis tools help bring transparency to your conclusions. A fully-integrated help system makes easier work of entering complex formulas. Add data from external databases such as SQL or Oracle, then sort and filter them to produce statistical analyses. Use the graphing functions to display large number of 2D and 3D graphics from 13 categories, including line, area, bar, pie, X-Y, and net - with the dozens of variations available, you're sure to find one that suits your project.

      Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations. Stunning animation and sensational special effects help you convince your audience. Create presentations that look even more professional than the standard presentations you commonly see at work. Get your collegues' and bosses' attention by creating something a little bit different.

      Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not try something simple with box and line diagrams? Or else go further and easily build dynamic 3D illustrations and special effects. It's as simple or as powerful as you want it to be.

      Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate into your existing database structures. Based on imported and linked tables and queries from MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft Access and many other data sources, you can build powerful databases containing forms, reports, views and queries. Full integration is possible with the in-built HSQL database.

      Math is a simple equation editor that lets you lay-out and display your mathematical, chemical, electrical or scientific equations quickly in standard written notation. Even the most-complex calculations can be understandable when displayed correctly. E=mc2.

      LibreOffice also comes configured with a PDF file creator, meaning you can distribute documents that you're sure can be opened and read by users of almost any computing device or operating system.

      Redesigned Office app for Windows reportedly rolling out to some Insiders
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Back in July, a redesigned Office.com homepage began rolling out to business users. The revamped UI brought a vertical pane on which the Office 365 apps were pinned, along with more screen real estate for viewing recent files and documents. Now, it looks like the redesign is being made available to more users running the Office app on Windows.

      A Microsoft 365 Roadmap listing suggests that the redesign is expected to be rolled out to all users, both for Office.com and the Office app on Windows in September. Considering that the targeted release is this month, it is likely that the update will begin to make its way to more insiders sooner than later. Additionally, the update is supposedly enabled via a server-side switch, meaning that the change is not tied to any specific app updates from the Microsoft Store.

      Image credit: WindowsBlogItalia The new design comes with a few new elements such as a vertical list of icons for launching apps, the ability to create a new document and view a list of recent Office and OneDrive files in the Recents view. While business users can also view SharePoint pages and files from their organization, it is not clear what other features are making it to the app and web portal for consumers, other than the list of recently accessed documents.
