> some standalone Windows 10 exam laptops with Office 2019
Could you please share us more information about "standalone"? Can thses computers use Group Policy?
Here is a similar thread, you could have look, "disable proofing, spell checker, using GPO".
Based on my tests, if you install the English for Office via
<Language ID="en-us" /> under Product ID of Office 2019, and you want to remove English proofing language which is one of proof tools included in English language package, your requirement is unable to be achieved.
Under this casce, you could only remove the whole English language package instead of proofing tools included in this language pack.
But if in addition to English, you also install a proofing language that is not included in English language package via adding
<Product ID="ProofingTools">, such as Chinese proofing tool, this proofing tool could be removed via Remove element, because it is not integrated in your English language pack.
Thanks for your understanding.
