    Office Insider v1806 build 10205.20008 - May 9


    This article contains release notes for Insider builds of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access and Project for Windows desktop. Every week, we’ll highlight interesting new features, important fixes, and any significant issues we want you to know about. Note that we often roll out features (and sometimes even fixes) over a period of time to Insiders. This allows us to ensure that things are working smoothly before releasing the feature to a wider audience. So, if you don’t see something described below, not to worry. You'll get it eventually.

    May 9, 2018 Version 1806 (build 10205.20008)

    I installed Office on a clean build of April Update 1803 - then once again checked for updates - it only got me to 9327.2006.

    Checking again today to see if it actually updates to a newer build.

    Will having Windows Update set to deferred interfere with this process of Running Office Updates from inside of Word, perchance?

    I got it but it did not fix a bug I reported, Outlook Support (Preview) wants me to try a few more things. Now I can report a suggestion too, have a button to print the chat window!

    Interesting - most chats I've had with Microsoft hae always had a button there to email the chat log - which is then printable from my computer.

    But, I'll admit, I haven't had to speak with anyone from the Office team in well over a decade....
