Installing Office Assistant RRS feed

  • Question

  • In "idiot speak", because I am the least technical person on the planet, could anyone please tell me if I can install Office Assistant (the paperclip with options - I used to have the cat) on to the new Word 2016 package I am having installed. My IT chap says it no longer has Office Assistant in it.

    My grateful thanks

  • Your IT person is telling you true.

    The Office Assistant ("Clippy" and cohorts) was killed off with the Ribbon interface in 2007.

  • Your 'IT chap' is correct. The last version of Office that had an 'Office Assistant' was Office 2003 (PC) & 2004 (Mac).
