Notice the shadow version of "Annotate LWE PRO Trial" below the editable menu - this shows a user in the process of dragging the menu item OFF the menu.
Or, in plain text:
- Delete Annotate from the Startup/Word folder on your Mac. This folder is usually in the following location: Macintosh HD ▸ Applications ▸ Microsoft Office 2011 ▸ Office ▸ Startup ▸ Word.
- Restart Word. If you still see the Annotate menu alongside File, Edit etc move onto #3.
- Click View in the Word menu
- DRAG the Annotate menu from the editable menu (that appears just below the actual menu) and drop it anywhere on a document. You’re removing it from your menu structure.
