If you hate waiting on Microsoft to send you the latest Microsoft Office update, just follow these two steps to manually update your copy of Office to the latest version.
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.
- Launch any of the Microsoft Office Apps (Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and Click File > Account
- Click Update Options > 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.
