Late last night, Microsoft released a new Office 2016 patch, KB 4011093. According to the KB article, it fixes a bug in the Aug. 1 Office 2016 non-security patch KB 4011051, which left hyperlinks in Excel 2016 non-functional.

It also fixes two additional bugs:

  • For the 32-bit version of Outlook 2016, Office Store redirects you to the web store instead of opening the in-client store.
  • Editing languages and Help languages may be changed unexpectedly. For example, a display language may be missing from the editing languages list even if you have not removed it.

There’s no need to install this patch of a patch, unless you’re having problems with hyperlinks in Excel 2016 spreadsheets. KB 4011093 will not go out via Windows Update. Check the KB article for manual download and installation instructions.
