Keeping Office Up to Date
Keeping Office Up to Date
As they say, nothing lasts forever. Your nice, shiny Office installation will undoubtedly need
updates soon—perhaps to address new security exploits, to update junk mail filtering rules,
or to ix a newly discovered bug.
With a Click-to-Run version of Office, you’re all set. By default, updates are downloaded
and installed automatically. If you want to confirm this setting, click the File tab in any
Office program, and then click Help. As shown in Figure 2-7, clicking Update Options lets
you disable updates—but you really shouldn’t do that!
Figure 2-7 The Update Options button on the right side of the Help tab appears only on
Clickto-Run versions of Office 2010.
In non–Click-to-Run versions of Office, the Help tab in Backstage view includes a Check For
Updates button. There’s no particular reason to use that button however, as it’s merely a
shortcut to Windows Update—the standard part of Windows that manages the download
and installation of updates to Windows and Microsoft applications, including Office.
