    I have Office 2016 Standard installed, and when it updates it downloads updates for programs that is not part of this version of Office like Access and Visio. Is there a way to stop this and download only updates for the original programs of the Office Standard version?

    Thanks for any help.

    dhjohns I'm sorry for the late answer, but I was away.
    The problem is that when downloading updates it includes updates for programs that is not part of the Standard edition in the first place like Access, Skype for Business and Publisher, these programs are not original part of my installation and never have these installed before in my laptop. this is a real waste of disk space, and if I uninstall them they are re-downloaded again.

    There are a lot of dependencies in Office so those are still updated to assure compatibility.
