Wine – how to remove menu entries after uninstalling programmes

The only MS programme I need on my computer is Word 2007 for the equation editor to write/edit files from work. So after installing Wine I installed MSOffice2007. Excel worked OK (although I don’t need it - I am perfectly happy with the Libre Office spreadsheet). Word however froze each time so I tried to uninstall and reinstall it. However I always got an error message when trying to uninstall with Wine. So I followed the advice of some strands in this forum and deleted the Program Files folder from the directory. However the menus are still in Wine/Programs/Microsoft Office even though they lead to nowhere. I tried to reinstall but still I nothing happened. I presume the old entries still lead to the position where previously the .exe files were located. Now my question is either how can I remove these menu entries and try installing again – or even better – is there a Linux programme that can read/edit the equations written in Word 2007?

You manually edit the menu
The method of doing that is slightly different, depending if you use KDE or Gnome

KDE= Right click the main menu launcher and you get access to the menu editor

Gnome= Control Centre > Look and Feel > Main Menu

Remember to save your changes

Thanks caf4926 I am using KDE and have the menu removed now.

You are welcome :smiley:

I really do not know if a linux program exists which can read it. I only can
tell you what I have (on the business laptop):
Since in very rare cases but sometimes I need original MS office to read
some files I have a virtual machine (at the moment in a vmware player,
virtual box will do just fine as I tested on my PC) with windows 7 (and an
older virtual machine with XP) and the windows programs I need in it.
Some of the office programs from MS are so deeply integrated into the system
that you have a hard time with wine (Outlook for example will not work at
all with wine, regardless what you do).
