So far no problem but my backup plan is to change to the free LibreOffice. Since I don't need Outlook E-Mail on most of my computers not a problem. LibreOffice can open a number of file types and save as several.

I did read all the suggested options for getting rid of this annoying banner in Word, but I'm not sure if I could do some of the suggested options on how to remove the banner. If there is a simple answer please include me in the updated solution.

Hi nownthen,

press the Windows logo key + r and type "regedit", then navigate this path:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\ClickToRun called UpgradeAdvertised

and set the value to '0' - problem solved!. :)

Hi Wolfie, I tried to do as you suggested but when I got to the last item called UpgradeAdvertised ----that command was not there.

This is what appeared

I have Office 2010 on all my pc's but never have seen that banner. Officially the support ended on October 13th,2020 , however I still get updates even two months after (just got them on patch Tuesday).
I have the Office 2010 Professional plus Version, maybe that makes a difference.

The registry path should be: (There may be slight variations in the path titles - 16,for example, could be 15)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\policies\microsoft\office\16.0\common\officeupdate
You should see the key, or, make one Enter Value name\HideUpdateNotifications
Value type Reg Dword
Enabled value 1
Disabled value (which you want ) 0

I thank you both- Wolfie and davehc - I did try to follow both sets of instructions but could not do it. So I will just keep clicking on the banner to turn it off. I appreciate you both trying to help me but it didn't work for me. I will mark this as Solved even tho I couldn't do your instructions. Don't want to take up any more of your time.

My 2012 64-bit Dell 660 W10 v2004 has MS Office Starter 2010, with NO End of Support banner in Word or Excel. On Dec 9, my Dell installed > Security Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB4486698) 32-Bit Edition. Dell factory installed Office Starter 2010 in 2012, when Dell was W7 (I ordered W7 instead of W8).
