Seems you installed Office in Click-to-Run way, unfortunately it’s not possible to select what you want to install by default
But you can try changing installation config to achieve this
As the answer in this post in Office Tech, you can add something like below in xml config to skip applications you don’t want
<ExcludeApp ID= "Access" />
If you want only Word, then exclude all but Word in config like
<Configuration> <Add OfficeClientEdition="64" > <Product ID="ProPlusRetail"> <Language ID="en-us"/> <ExcludeApp ID= "Access" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Lync" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Outlook" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "OneDrive" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "OneNote" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Groove" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Publisher" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "SharePointDesigner" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "PowerPoint" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Excel" /> <ExcludeApp ID= "Visio" /> </Product> </Add> </Configuration>
After editing, save and run installer

- Can I install a subset of the Office 2016 applications?
No, the ability to selectively install individual applications is not
available with Office 2016. The vast majority of customers prefer the
full installation of all of the Office apps so they are assured that
they have the ability to open, view and edit any document they may
need. We will continue to evaluate feedback on this topic.
If you’re interested in a work-around, all I’ve found was this post, but results aren’t verified. Apparently, MS is now providing administrators with a deployment tool for click-to-run installations. If you plan on trying this, I’m curious to see if it works. If it doesn’t, it’s still possible to supply MS with feedback concerning this, it wouldn’t be the first time they change policies after massive feedback from the community (see how onedrive for businesses is evolving at the moment).
