Equip Microsoft Word With Latest Updates

Microsoft allows you to update the various applications with the latest features and program fixes from the Microsoft website. Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook or any other applications can be updated from Microsoft’s official website. By equipping with the latest updates, Microsoft applications not only perform better but at the same time become more reliable and secure. Microsoft suggests all its applications to be updated at regular intervals so as to give you best user experience and work results. You may find similar interesting topics on Microsoft FAQ forums.

Here we will discuss about how to update Microsoft Word on your computer.

Instructions to update MS Word

  • Launch your web browser and go to the Microsoft Office Official website.
  • Click on the Microsoft Word link you see on the home page.
  • To check for updates, click on Check for Microsoft Updates button.
  • When the Microsoft Update page opens, you can see two options namely Express and Custom installations.
  • If you just need only the high-priority updates click on Express. If you need all possible Microsoft Office updates, choose Custom. The default suggestion from Microsoft is to choose Express.
  • Once you click on either of these update options, it will start a scan on your computer to check what all updates are required. The scanning might take from several seconds to several minutes depending upon the amount of updates needed. If you haven’t done any recent updates, it will take long, while the scanning completes quickly if you had performed any updates on your system recently.
  • Once the scanning is complete, you will get a page which displays all the high-priority updates that your system needs (in case of Express).
  • To start the update, click on Install Updates. This will start downloading the latest updates, and will get installed into your system.
  • After the updates are downloaded and installed, you must restart your system in order to effect the newly installed updates. You may either click Close to finish the update, or click Restart Now to complete the update. As soon as the system is rebooted, Microsoft Office will be installed with new updates.

From this page, you can also find updates for your other MS Office applications. You can follow the same procedure to install the updates for other Microsoft applications too. If you have any further queries or doubts, you may visit Microsoft FAQ forums or Microsoft Support Center and get more assistance.
