    Microsoft is working on a huge Office apps update for Windows 10


    Similar to the Windows Insider program, Microsoft also allows users to become an “Office Insider”. By joining the Office Insider program, you can check out upcoming versions of Office apps for Windows 10, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

    Microsoft is testing several new features for Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook. In the latest preview update for Insiders, Microsoft has introduced a new theme setting for Office apps that will allow Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc to match Windows 10’s system settings.

    For example, Word will automatically switch to its native dark mode if you use Windows 10’s built-in dark theme settings.

  3. Microsoft Confirms Windows, Office 6-Month Update Cycle

    Microsoft has been steadily increasing stability, features and, the company hopes, attractiveness of its latest Windows 10 operating system. Recently, its Creator's Update has brought, among other features, a performance-boosting Game Mode, a 3D version of the popular and (respectably ancient) Paint app, as well as increased privacy control, something users clamored for. Now, the Redmond company has confirmed that it's looking towards a six month update cycle for Windows 10 (thus aligning it with Office 365 ProPlus), looking to streamline and increase predictability of its support.

    Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in August 2016, and the Creators Update made its public debut on April 11 2017, which is already close to the six-month update cycle the company is now confirming (seven months, in this case.) Now the company has confirmed that it plans to release its next step on the Windows 10 operating system on September 2017. From then on, updates should arrive in a steady cadence, on every subsequent March and September. Each Windows 10 feature release will be serviced and supported for 18 months, as is currently the case, and the company has also added that its System Center Configuration Manager will support this new aligned update model for Office 365 ProPlus and Windows 10, "making both easier to deploy and keep up to date."
