The Microsoft Office July 2018 non-security updates are out
It is the first Tuesday of July 2018 and that means it is Microsoft Office Patch Day; more precisely, it is Office non-security patch day as this happens on the first Tuesday of any month while security updates for Office are delivered a week later on the second Tuesday of the month.
Check out last month's updates as well if you have not already.
Microsoft released updates for Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 today. These updates are only provided for the MSI installer version of Microsoft Office and not for Click-to-run editions such as Office 365.
Updates are available for direct download on the Microsoft Download Center or through Microsoft Update.
Just follow the links to Microsoft's support website. You find downloads links for 32-bit and 64-bit versions on the page.

Again, Thanks Martin a bright shining beacon of helpful information for what is going on in Microsoft update country, or should I say in 2018 Microsoft update world?
I am writing world because the universe is still a step too far for Microsoft I personly convinced about.
This because as far as I know, there are no monthly Microsoft update’s delivered in outer space in like the orbital space station ! ;-)
But maybe I am completely wrong?
Can I audit the patches, see into the binaries and convince myself it is really all that it says they are?
No? Aww, too bad.
Just another reason why Windows is not ready for the desktop, or for Grandma.
Thanks for the info. Your blog is great.
