Microsoft Office Patchday (February 4, 2020)

[German]On February 4, 2020 (first Tuesday of the month, Office Patchday), Microsoft released several non-security updates for versions of Microsoft Office (this time only for Office 2016) that are still supported.


The updates apply to the installable MSI version of Office and are provided through Windows Update. Click-to-run packages receive updates through other channels. For this reason, Office 2019 no longer appears in the following list because only click-to-run installers are available there. Microsoft lists the updates on this page.

Office 2016

The packages are automatically distributed via Windows Update, but can also be manually downloaded and installed via the linked KB articles as downloads.

  • Update for Microsoft Project 2016 (KB4484253): Fixes a saving problem in Project.
  • Update for Microsoft Word 2016 (KB4484249): Synchronous scrolling does not work when you view documents side by side. This issue occurs when the documents are in draft or outline view.

The issues that I listed in the German blog post Nachlese Office-Probleme nach Januar 2020-Patchday are unlikely to be addressed by the updates.
