Windows 10: Windows 10 update won't update Office 2016

    Windows 10 update won't update Office 2016

    Per this article, Microsoft claims that Windows update will download Office updates for the user:

    Update Office and your computer with Microsoft Update - Office Support

    On three different computers I've configured it this way, and none of them have ever downloaded an Office update. It's annoying to have to manually do it all the time.

    Have any of you had any luck updating Office via Windows update? If you have, please share any things that you've done to make it work. Thanks.

    In Windows Update 'Advanced Options', have you checked, 'Give me updates for other MS products...'?

    I don't like to bump threads, but I have another laptop that I recently updated from Windows 7 to 10. It has Office 2010 installed, and Windows update does download patches for it.

    It's odd that on my three other computers, Windows update doesn't patch Office 2016. Anyone else ever ran into this issue?

    Same problem

    I'm having same problem as mentioned in the original title, i.e Office 2016 not updating via windows update. I'm using the same laptop, 2 months ago all was well but suddenly windows update is not offering office 2016 update via windows update. Give me updates for other Microsoft product is still checked.
    Any advice?

    Apparently Office is updated through "Click to Run" and checks for updates on its own daily. You should see a Click to Run entry in your update history. I went to the File Menu > Office Account and then to the Office Updates > Office Options drop down and manually updated from there. It did an update to office. I don't know how you see what Office updates are done though? Windows update doesn't show them? And clicking the view updates option from that drop down menu just takes you to a web page?

This was a pretty odd thing especially considering the effect. In the normal Startup or on the task-bar the icons for each program are where I put them and look and work normally. However, on my desktop itself, they only show up as white squares....
