    I'm not sure why you don't have "Office Updates" there, but if you have Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows checked in your Windows Update settings, then Windows Update will automatically install your Office 2016 updates when available.

    Are you signed in to an administrator account?

    Interesting. Was this Office preinstalled on your PC, or a retail copy you installed?

    I've seen it mentioned a few times on the Internet that the OEM copies do not always have the "Office Updates" option.

    Either way, you can update Office via Windows Update when you have Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows checked.
