How to Manually Update to the Latest Microsoft Office Release

paint-featured

Microsoft O365 subscribers receive updates to Microsoft Office products each-and-every-month. Sometimes the updates include bug fixes and security updates while others include awesome new features like AutoSave. Although Microsoft will updates users automatically, they stagger the updates in order to not overload their servers. If you’re like me, I hate waiting so here’s how you can manually update your Office Apps to the latest version from Microsoft.

  1. Launch any of the Microsoft Office Apps (Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and Click File >  Accountmanually-update-microsoft-office
  2. Click Update Options > Update Now
    office-update-now

If an update is needed it will be downloaded and installed automatically. If you already have the latest version, Office will let you know and the update process will end.

    Thanks for all your great tips from which I have learned so much!
    With Office 365, I also have the German language Pack installed, When I follow your instructions for manually updating the latest Microsoft Office release, the instructions I get are in German. Is there a way to make those prompts appear in English?
    Your help is much appreciated!

    If these people were too stupid to know how to update MS Office, maybe they shouldn’t be using it in the first place.
