How to rollback Microsoft Office to a previous build

How to rollback Microsoft Office to a previous build
Microsoft Office is the most popular software package which is used by millions of user worldwide. Usually, it works fine and security updates and bug fixes are installed for Microsoft Office automatically, but sometimes any auto-installation of any update with any bug creates a lot of problems and there is no simple way to roll back Office to the previous build once an update is installed. But in this article, I would tell you about the easiest way to rollback to the previous build of Microsoft Office without any hassles. Follow the steps below:
  • Open command prompt with admin rights (in elevated mode).
  • Type the following command and press enter.
    cd "\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun"
  • Now type the following command and press enter.
    officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.012827.20470 (Replace the build number which you want to install in your machine. You can check the build numbers from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-office-2019)
  • Now Office updated would be downloaded and installed.
  • That's it. Now if you want to stop the auto-update fir Office, click on File > Account > Update Options > Disable Updates
