I just installed Office 2016.  Like in Office 2013 there is a yellow smiley in the upper right corner of each office application.  I would like to know how to disable that feature as all it is for is sending feedback to Microsoft.  The smiley is an eyesore, is there a way to hide it?  I found online instructions to do so for Office 2013 but that method does not work on Office 2016.

I installed Office 2016 Professional Plus x64 in Windows 7 x64 using the office deployment tool so that only Word, Excel, Access, Outlook, Publisher, and PowerPoint are installed.  I have also uninstalled OneDrive as I don't plan to use it.
