Updating your Microsoft Office is very important, and while you may rather click the ‘Remind Me Later’ box, it is not a wise thing to do. Software updates are critical for many reasons, but the main ones are to repair software loopholes that unscrupulous people may use to hack your machine, fix software bugs, or provide new features that you may find helpful.

The best way to ensure that your Microsoft Office is kept up to date is to have it updated every time your Windows updates are carried out. This will make it a painless exercise. To set this up, follow these few simple steps that will ensure your software is always kept current.
