I have Office 2013 installed on my laptop, using the Click-to-Run installation method. This means I downloaded Office 2013 directly from my Office 365 portal.
Today I received an alert that Office updates are available. I installed them and the whole process took no longer than 5 minutes.
It wasn’t as seamless as I expected. The applications I was running at the time needed to close. I expected that the update ‘bits’ would stream in while I was using Office. But by letting the update process close the applications, they were re-opened back at the point in my document I was last working, at the end of the installation. And as I said, it only took 5 minutes because the update only streamed the bits that were required.
Click the update balloon
Allow your programs to be closed automatically.
Updates finish installing.
After which, the Office applications I had opened before I installed the updates, opened automatically, returning to the very same page I was working from.
Simple update process, short install time and returned to where I left off. I’m happy.
I was able to Keep Calm-Install Updates-Carry On Working.
