    Office 2016 latest update BLACK Theme

    Hi there

    YMMV but I'm not so sure about this one --it has a certain charm and probably will be liked by younger users on these boards -- however it's worth a look.

    After latest Office 2016 update there's the BLACK Theme . I don't have Office 365 but I'd imagine same thing.

    Looks a bit like this (I think it's been 100% cloned from Linux Oxygen Black theme !!!!!).

    Note I'm using RETAIL - not the preview version.

    Why is Office365 late? The latest on the subscription channel is still 16.0.6001.1061

    Hi there

    Can't answer about Office 365 - although did you click on the office update button -- even though it says updates will be installed automatically You can do a manual check for updates.

    Failing that does Windows update give / install any Office updates for you.

    Yep. Clicking the update button, and it says you're up to date.

    BTW, with subscription, updating happens in the background and is essentially separated from Windows update as the click-to-run module is the one that performs the background updates. You can still manually update though, but upgrading from 2013 to 2016 did require a notification that says Office 2016 update is available and you can choose to update later. The time I posted my first post was the time the Office 365 notified me about Office 2016.

    No black theme showing for me? Office 2016 16.0.6568.2015 Retail. Checked Outlook and Word. White, Colorful, Dark Grey is all that's listed. Clicking Update now just reports you are all up to date.

    No joy for me. Looks like the enterprise subscription channel is the latest that gets updated.
