[fix] Office 2013 update not integrated in Windows Update

Frustration: I am unable to update Office 2013. Office 2013 isn’t integrated in Windows Update. The option to “get updates for other Microsoft programs” is completely missing in the settings of Windows Update.

Clicking on the link “get updates for other Microsoft products” just links to a website that says how to open Windows Update.

My machine is on Win7, Ultimate, 64-bit and I am using Office 2013 Professional Plus.

Answer: My default browser was Chrome! Opening the link “get updates for other Microsoft products” in Chrome is no help! Set IE as your default browser. Close all browsers and hit the “get updates for other Microsoft products” again. Now you will be presented with appropriate options. If it still does not work, try toggling your “Compatibility view settings” in IE.
