    How to Check for Updates in Office 2016 for Windows

    information   Information
    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.

    You can also manually check for Office 2016 updates at any time unless automatic Office updates are disabled. It's recommend that you use automatic updating—but if you choose not to, be sure to check for updates at least once a week.

    This tutorial will show you how to manually check for and install updates for Office 2016 on your Windows PC.



    Here's How:

    1. In an Office 2016 program (ex: Outlook 2016), click/tap on File. (see screenshot below)

    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.
