Configuring Windows 10 for Microsoft Office Updates
- Open Start Menu and go to Settings.
- Select Update & Security.
- Now go to Advanced Settings under “Update Settings”.
- Enable “Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows”.
Next time when you check for Windows Updates it will also tell you the available Office updates. Make sure you haven’t enabled Metered Connection on your current network. But if you still can’t update Microsoft Office with Windows then wait for some time it will automatically start detecting the updates.
Microsoft Office in not a freeware and you have to buy the product to use it but there are some alternatives which you can use such as Google Docs and LibreOffice.
