What feature you are using today can be found unavailable the other day on the same software. So, there is a lost and found situation. Let’s discuss a situation where Microsoft Word’s “Save As” screen with shortcuts option is found with previously used folders. After an Office 365 update, the same thing is missing. Moreover, it made Word 2016 harder to use and witnessed a bug in Outlook 2016 and resulted in an unwarranted interface change. This move not only affects the productivity but also makes things harder to use. Now, users are interested in getting back to the older version and it can be made possible with expert Support and help for Outlook 365.

Microsoft help center for Outlook 365 can help users easily revert to the older Outlook versions used by Microsoft Outlook users previously. There are also other sources that can help Outlook users take support for Outlook 365. Following is a 5-step approach that will help Outlook 365 users get back to the previous version in an easy manner.

  1. The very first step that you need to take is to turn off Automatic Updates. By doing so, you will be able to reach in a situation where the Office package will not try to update itself without asking you for doing the same. Stir Word and then click File > Account. After this, you need to click the Update Options button and select Disable Updates option to close the program.
  2. Now, create a tiny program called ‘a batch file’ to “update” Office 365 to the previous version, specifically 16.0.6366.2062. Right-click any open area and choose New > Text Document.
  3. Give the new document a new name “Revert” and open the file. Once you did the same, it is high time to copy and paste in the following text: cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRunofficec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.6366.2062.
  4. Then, Click File > Save As and add .bat to the end of the filename. Then, click Save as Type and set it to All Files. Now, you Notepad will not try to save it as a text file.
  5. Finally, you need to run your newly created Revert.bat program and wait until Office 365 reverts.
