February 2019 updates for Office 2016, 2013 and 2010


Here’s the list of the February 2019 bug fixes or ‘non-security’ updates for Office 2016, Office 2013 and Office 2010.

They don’t apply to Office 365 or Office 2019 which use the ‘Click to Run’ install and update service.

Many of the updates are preparing for the upcoming Japanese Era change.

Office will be updated automatically in the usual way.  Cautious Office users might want to delay updating until any update bugs are fixed.
