    I only need wirte articles . I use spellchecker. I use Styles to put titles . I use only 2 or 3 fonts (arial, times, and basket ville or something likethat), i only need to put foot notes, page numbers, headers, some images, i dont know about the correspondence features, i dont want word have the option to read document, i only need the functions above . And tell me if i disable that office will be a litle faster?
    In power point i dont use transitions, i record me explaining presentation, i use the suggestions stiles, and no more.
    In excel i only use %, peasserons correlations, and sumatories.
    In publisher my girl use it and one note i use all features.
    Some sugestions to speed up office.

    To customise Office, I think you could go to File>Options>Customise Ribbon and then check/uncheck the options according to what you want to see in the tabs. But I actually can't see the reason for someone to do that; if you don't use some option just leave it there. In terms of performance, maybe you should do your own test, but I tend do think that newer versions will consume more memory, CPU etc, so that may impact performance.

    As long as you don't have useless addins enabled there are not much you can do to speed up word. You are either using large files and saving often or your pc is of low specs.

    Go into options/add-ins, in all of your various office apps, and get rid of junk.
