All Office updates can be easily downloaded and installed via Microsoft Updates, or by directly downloading their installers from the Microsoft Download Center. But you can also update Office 2019/2016/2013 manually. Let us see how to do it.
Update Microsoft Office manually
Load any ordinary Office Application like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel. Navigate the mouse cursor to ‘File’ menu. Under it, select ‘Account’.
Next, below ‘Manage Account’ section you can observe ‘Update Options’ box.
Click on the drop-down arrow of the box to get the list of options displayed. From it, select ‘Disable Updates’.
Then, repeat the same action and this time choose Enable updates option.
The action taken will force Office to download and install newly available updates. In case you have not yet installed Office Service Pack yet, you may also receive some updates. Download and install them in your version of Office.
Following the completion of updating process, you may find a new option under Update Options: Update Now.
Office 2013 Service Pack 1 has introduced an “Update Now” command to the Update Options button for streamlining the manual process of checking for updates. All the Office applications should be at version 15.0.4569.1506 or higher, as of date.
To update Office manually, simply use the new Update Now option.
