Although the subscription model is rising, some users still have the installed version of Excel. Microsoft still supports the software by sending updates from time to time. If you’re one of the lucky people that bought the app previously, read on to learn how to update it.
If you own a MacOS device, the process is as follows:
– Open Excel
– Go to Help
– Select the “Check for Updates” option
– Click the “Automatically Download and Install” choice
– Select the “Check for Updates” to initiate the download
- Wait until the new version settles, and the program restarts
Can you activate automatic updates?
The automatic updates on Office apps, including Excel, are allowed only on Mac. Go to the “Updates” page on your Mac, as described above, and check the “Automatically keep the Microsoft Apps up to date” box. If you’ve downloaded the program from the App Store, go to the “Updates” page and click “Update All.” You can also open the beta channel to get the latest and greatest features before anyone else.
