Microsoft released August non-security updates for Microsoft Office.

Microsoft doesn’t give up on older versions of Office

After opening some new datacenters in Africa to make Office 365 services more accessible and making Office apps more easier to use in virtual environments, Microsoft now focuses on the older Office versions.

Some of them are still accessed by a lot of Windows 10 users, and the new updates are most welcomed.

These updates bring some improvements and fixes for Office 2013 and Office 2016, but do not apply to the Click-to-Run versions, such as Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus.

Depending on your last update for Office, you may have to install two or more previous updates before applying the latest one.

We have to mention that some of the updates are only for Office apps like OneNote, Skype for Business, Excel, PowerPoint or Project, while others are for the entire suite of Office 2013 and 2016.
