Turn Microsoft Office Online featured links on or off

Microsoft Office Online featured links are your source of up-to-date information from Microsoft Office Online that will help you increase your productivity with Office and provide you with the answers to questions frequently asked about Office. Microsoft is constantly responding to customer feedback, and these featured links are the best way to get new and updated information about Office from within your Office program. These links appear on the Getting Started and the <Program Name> Help task panes (task pane: A window within an Office program that provides commonly used commands. Its location and small size allow you to use these commands while still working on your files.). Your Office program will only access information from Microsoft Office Online when you are connected to the Internet (Internet: A worldwide network of thousands of smaller computer networks and millions of commercial, educational, government, and personal computers. The Internet is like an electronic city with virtual libraries, stores, art galleries, and so on.).

  1. On the Help menu, click Microsoft <Program Name> Help to display the <Program Name> Help task pane (task pane: A window within an Office program that provides commonly used commands. Its location and small size allow you to use these commands while still working on your files.).
  2. Under See also in the task pane, click Online Content Settings.
  3. In the Service Options dialog box, select or clear the Show Microsoft Office Online featured links check box.

The Show content and links from Microsoft Office Online check box must be selected before you can select the Show Microsoft Office Online featured links check box.

 Notes 

  • This setting applies to all of your Office programs.
