Or, for that matter, when Office update notifications appear, do you hear some kind of a notification sound that you would hear when you plug in a USB device? If yes, then press Windows+V and press Enter to activate the notification (this command sequence will be changing later this year).

I have not followed all of this thread, but have you tried shift+f10 to bring up the context menu on items in the task bar?

The quickest way that I’ve found is to use Alt+F within Office to get to the backstage view, then move down to the Office Account tab with Down-Arrow, then use the tab key to move across to the updates control, where you can press a button to install updates.

If I remember right, you press tab to get to single click

I’ve looked at the system tray with both JAWS+B and INSERT+F11.  Both of these indicate Office updates are available.  Problem is I don’t know how to activate the update.  When I tried JAWS+B hitting space or enter on it did nothing, and the applications key didn’t do anything either.  When I hit INSERT+F11, I see the office update option there.  When I left double click on it, I get a ding sound and a notification that there are updates for office, and I need to click on it to start it.  I hit WINDOWS+A and I either see collapse something, or set the PC into tablet mode.  How do I activate the update?  It’s not in the list of WINDOWS+A options.


Thanks for any help.


Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.
