Q. Why am I receiving update notifications for my Office applications?
While working in Word , PowerPoint , Excel , Outlook and OneNote , you may experience pop-up notifications alerting you to new updates that have been downloaded are ready for installation.
As some updates require the application to be closed, you are presented with 2 options;
- Restart App will temporarily close your application; it will automatically re-open once the updates have successfully been completed.
- You may also choose to Update Later. In this instance, the process will simply be delayed. Any updates will automatically be installed once you finish working and close the application.
- In our opinion it is best to update your apps as soon as possible.
