Microsoft released the non-security Microsoft Office updates along with some enhancements and fixes for Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 2016 versions.

The tech giant has not introduced any security fixes for Office this time as they are usually released as a part of the Patch Tuesday cycle. Hence, we can expect a new round of security updates on March 11.
