Most of us already know to update Windows OS’s on a regular basis, either manually or by turning on Automatic Updates. One of the more overlooked Microsoft updates however is Office. One way to do this easily from an Office 2007 Word document is to click on the Office Button Word Options.
This will pop up the Word Options screen where you will want to click “Check for Updates”.
You may need to download the WGA tool first and allow Active X to execute in IE a few times … but after that you can choose which updates you want to install.
