I just noticed that on a friend's computer his version of Windows 10 and Office 2016 allow him to get Office updates with the "Give me updates to other Microsoft products..." box checked in Windows Update. I also noticed his version of Office doesn't have the "update options" box under the Account selection in any of the Office applications. Mine does, and when I select "Give me updates to other Microsoft products..." it doesn't do anything I still have to do the manual update in Office where the dialogue box pops up. I read that this could be because of a "Click-to-run" version of Office 2016. What does that mean and is there a way to enable my Office to update when I receive Windows updates? It is more convenient and it is the way previous versions of Office worked.

That seems to apply to Office 365 type applications. Mine has never "automatically updated." Periodically, I open Office and go to the update section and then it downloads and installs updates.
