If you know how to uninstall, and you don't want it, then what's the problem?

So you can edit files on your tablet?

The fact that the installation took place without my permission is the problem.

I have no intention of doing that, ever. Well, if Belus was bearing down on us and I wanted to contact Hendron to a seat on the ship to Zira and that took a formal letter, maybe, but not otherwise. I have three real computers for that kind of work.

This is silly. The OP questions the pre-load policies of hardware sellers? Does he not have any knowledge of business practices etc>

This turns out to be a total waste of our time. Take your complaint to BBB or whoever if you think buying something with pre-loaded software is against your rights, or however you define the problem. Meanwhile, I'll watch for more time wasting posts in the future.

Geesh.

It wasn't preloaded. I mentioned that it was a hand-me-down back in the part of the thread you didn't read. (Which apparently included the OP.)

It was pre-loaded for you. I've followed this POS from the beginning, and don't like false accusations from time wasters.

I don't care if you read what you want to read regardless of what I post.

But you PAID for it. You have access to OneDrive. You don't ever see wanting to maybe even view docs on your tablet or phone with a proper piece of software, and not whatever junk was preloaded on your tablet?
Even if you never edit ONE doc it's nice to be able to view an Excel spreadsheet IN Exscel.
Again....you're paying for it. Why not?

It was done with my permission, that's the problem. The only thing I want to do on that tablet is read books and surf the web. I have one PC and two laptops if I want to do anything more.
