Step-by-Step Guide

Stage 1: Viewing Recent and Upcoming Updates

If you’d like to keep up to date with recent and upcoming changes in Microsoft Office, including applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, then this tutorial will show you how.

1) Start by opening an Office application, such as Excel, by searching in the bottom left of your main Windows 10 screen and then opening a recently used or new document.

2) Once the application has opened, look for the “What’s New?” icon in the top right, just to the right of your name and initials. Clicking on this icon will bring up a small pop-up where you should click “Show Me” to see the latest updates.

You can also access the “What’s New?” menu from the Help tab in the ribbon bar or from the File menu.

3) A reading pane will now appear on the right hand side of the screen.

4) In some updates you will be able to turn on new features from within the reading pane itself, in which case you may then need to restart the application and you will be prompted to do so. If you wish to undo any changes you have made you can repeat the above instructions and turn off any features you previously turned on.
