How to make Office rollbak

How to make Office rollback to before version.
Hello MarioHerrera

You could try to go back to a previous (and more stable) version of Office . Here the steps

Step 1: Set a reminder to enable automatic updates at a future date
Before you revert an Office Click-to-Run installation, you should disable automatic updates. To make sure that you don't miss future updates, set a reminder to manually check for future versions. When a new version becomes available, and if the new version doesn't exhibit the same issue that you experienced earlier, you should re-enable automatic updates.

Create a reminder to re-enable automatic updates. You can do this in Microsoft Outlook, on, or by using another application that has a calendar.

Step 2: Install the previous version of Office Click-to-Run

Determine and note the previous version number. Use the following Microsoft website to find the update version that is previous to the current version:

Microsoft Office 2016 Click-to-Run update:

Microsoft Office 2013 Click-to-Run update:

Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do this, click Start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator.

At the command prompt, run the following 2 commands:

For an Office 2016 installation:
cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun

For Office 2016
officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.xxxx.yyyy

For example:
officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.8431.2242


In these commands, 15.0.xxxx.yyyy or 16.0.xxxx.yyyy represents the full version number that you noted in step 1.
Because of recent changes, we refer to "version" as the 4-digit year/month identifier, and "build" as the full format (for example, 16.0.xxxx.yyyy). Therefore, the updatetoversion parameter uses the product build in Office 2016. For more information about the differences between versions and builds, see Version and build numbers of update channel releases.
When the repair dialog box appears, click Online Repair.
Click Repair, and then click Repair again.

Note If you are prompted to activate Office again, enter your Microsoft account and password. This step does not add your computer to your account a second time.

On 64-bit version of Windows, you can install Office 32-bit or Office 64-bit. However, 32-bit is more compatible.

For Office 2013
Determine the bit level of the operating system.
For an Office 2013 installation in a 32-bit version of Windows:
cd %programfiles%\Microsoft Office 15\ClientX86
For an Office 2013 installation in a 64-bit version of Windows:
cd %programfiles%\Microsoft Office 15\ClientX64

For Office 2013
officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=15.0.xxxx.yyyy

Step 3: Disable automatic updates for Office Click-to-Run
This step is very important. The repair process re-enables automatic updates. To prevent the newest version of Office Click-to-Run from being automatically reinstalled, follow these steps:

Start Outlook or another Offfice program.
Click File, and then click Office Account.
In the Product Information column, click Update Options, and then click Disable Updates.

Here you have the complete info:
