(applicable only to Office 2016/2013 installed using Office 365 subscription)

Please note that, the following method is useful only to stop receiving updates and not upgrades. That is, disabling Office updates this way will not stop upgrades to the next version of Office. Refer to Method 1 to stop your Windows 10/8.1 from receiving all kind of Office updates (applicable to both Office 365 and Office 2016/2013 installed without using Office 365).

Step 1: Open an Office application. You can open Word, Excel or any other Office application. We are using Office Word in this guide.

Step 2: Click the File menu and then click Account.

Step 3: On the right-side, you will see Update Options box (refer to the picture below). Click on the same to see the following four update options:

# Update Now

(Check for and apply updates for Office)

# Disable Updates

(Don’t update for security, performance and reliability)

# View Updates

(See the update history for this product)

# About Updates

Step 4: Click on the second option labelled Disable Updates to stop receiving security, reliability and performance updates for Office. In a nutshell, selecting this option will disable all Office updates.

Click Yes button when you see the User Account Control prompt. When updates are disabled, you will see “This product will not be updated” message right next to Update Options box.

To enable updates again, click the Updates Options box again and select Enable Updates option.
