Microsoft Office Updates (July 27, 2023)

[German]Small addendum from Friday, since this was already off my radar (came across it via Susan Bradley). Instead of the 1st Tuesday in July (A-Week), Microsoft released non-security updates for still-supported versions of Microsoft Office on July 27, 2023. There were Several updates for Office 2016 (Office 2013 went out of support in April 2023 and no longer receives non-security updates). Here is a brief overview of the updates.

For this reason, Office 2019 no longer appears in the list below, where only click-to-run installers are available. Microsoft lists the updates on this page.
