  1. Windows 10 Upgrade auto-updated Office 2016 to 365. Want to roll-back


    I just did the Windows 10 Upgrade to 1909. In the process, it also auto-updated Office 2016 to 365.

    I much prefer the Office 2016 UI (Search bar in 365 has too much dead space etc. - see this link https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...arch-bar/d137ff63-ef5e-4fe4-b9b2-37168581bc36)


    My question is
    (1) If I use the default roll-back solution, will it revert to Office 2016.

    (2) If I use other means of getting back Office 2016, how do I ensure that it does not automatically update to Office 365?


    Thanks!


    Best,
    Jason

    Office 365 or Office 2016

    I am having a similar problem. I have never to my knowledge indicated that I want Office 365 or an Office 365 "free trial"; I have Office 2016 installed on my laptop. The application list on the start menu does not include Office 365. However, Settings/Apps does indicate that it's installed. Today my system was co-opted by Office 365 Click-to-Run grabbing both disk and CPU; this has not happened before.

    I bought this laptop two years ago, bought Office 2016 and installed it via Microsoft download as no installation media were provided. I uninstalled the annoying "Get Office" application at that time and have been a happy Word user until earlier today.

    I don't know if this is relevant, but this behavior started right after Windows Update installed the August 14 cumulative update (KB4343909). No updates to either Office version appeared in update history.

    My questions about how to deal with this situation are:
    --Would the Uninstall option in Apps get rid of Office 365 entirely and leave Office 2016 in place and working?
    --Is there an effective way to disable or stop Click to Run and keep it stopped?
    --Should I change the update setting in Office to Do Not Update? I did try to look at the Office update history, but all I got was an Office 365 sign-in screen--useless because I don't have an Office 365 account.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much in advance.

    Cortana & Office 365 Integration

    We are trying to integrate Cortana with our Office 365 subscription, but it never works. Here are the steps we have done:



    • Turned on Cortona in the Office 365 Admin portal
    • We are using Windows 10 1703 – connected Office 365 service to Cortana
    Did the same on windows 10 mobile with no luck, Cortana says its connected to Office 365, but sees no data and we are getting zero errors

    We went rough office 365 support first and tried all fo their suggestions, they kicked us over to Windows support which is currently closed.

    We are on v1703 with all updates in place, it does not work on Windows 10 desktop or mobile

    any ideas? I can give you all steps 365 support had us run through if that will be helpful

    Thank you

    Doug
