The 25-second Office 365 Tune Up

 In Posts

Many small businesses rely on the Microsoft Office suite of products to conduct day-to-day business. Turning on Windows 10 and Office 365 automatic updates is a simple set-it-and-forget-it way to keep the products stable and secure.

Microsoft occasionally sends updates that require the PC to be rebooted for the update to be completely applied. In those rare cases, Windows 10 and Office 365… well… just start acting funny.

If your PC is acting funny or has not been rebooted within the past week or so, use the following steps before reaching out and bugging family members or wasting money on walk-in services.

Make sure Windows Updates have been applied:

  1. Click the Windows icon in the lower left-hand side of your screen
  2. Click the gear icon (Settings)
  3. Click “Update and Security”
  4. Click “Update Now” or follow outstanding update instructions if presented

Make sure MS Office Updates have been applied:

    1. Open an Office application (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
    2. Click “File”
    3. Click “Account”
    4. Follow instructions for warnings if they show up:
      • “Updates Available”
        • Click “Update Options”
        • Click “Update Now”
      • “There is a problem with your account, please log out and log back into Office Applications”
        • Click on your name in upper right-hand corner (or “log in” if your name isn’t there)
        • Follow instructions for logging out and back in
