Regular Office update

On the first Tuesday of every month, Microsoft releases non-security updates for versions of Microsoft Office that are still supported. The updates apply to the installable MSI version of Office and are delivered via Windows Update. Click-to-run packages receive the updates via other channels. 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.

The packages are distributed automatically via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded and installed manually via the linked KB articles. This time there were only the following updates:

  • KB5002569: Update for Microsoft Excel 2016; This update fixes an extended range of supported characters that cannot be displayed properly in the caption for an object that is pasted from a file as an icon.
  • KB5002466: Update for Microsoft Office 2016; This update fixes an extended range of supported characters that display as square boxes in the User Name field of the Options General dialog box.

The update(s) are provided automatically via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center and installed manually. The download addresses can be found in the linked KB article. Further details and instructions for downloading and installing the updates can also be found there.
