Office 365 Update User Experience

 

The Office 365 upgrade experience uses Software Center similar to the monthly Windows patch process. The upgrade needs 30 minutes and you’ll need to restart at the end.  While you will still be able to use your computer during the upgrade process, you will not have access to any Office Products during this time.  Please take this in to consideration when choosing the time to begin.

 

How do I update manually?

 

1. Open the Software Center by typing "Software Center" in the Search Bar
