how do you check for updates to Office 365?

I have Windows 77, Jaws 2019. Please tell me the steps to see if there are
office updates. Jaws said there were, but my sighted daughter didn't see
any.

Office 365 should be the most up to date version, unless they've changed how you get updates, and to my knowledge, they have not, so you shouldn't worry if it's current or not.

Hi. Microsoft does issue monthly updates to Office 365. Here is a quick way to check for Office updates.


1. Open an Office app, such as Word.

2. Press alt-F for what Microsoft calls the backstage view or what we still think of as the file menu.

3. Press D for Account.

4. Press the letter R, followed by the letter U to download any available updates.
