    MS Word for Mac Updates
    Mac desktop running 10.14.6

    Word 16.24 in Office 365

    I check for updates, screen says Word 16.28.0 is available, I install it successfully.

    16.28 is shown in the apps list outside the Office folder.

    It hasn't replaced or overwritten 16.24; it has added the update as a separate app.

    I moved 16.24 out of the Office folder and moved 16.28 in. I tried to open it and it froze.

    If I click on the Word icon in the dock, 16.24 opens; 16.28 is ignored.

    The cleanest fix is to deauthorize Word from Office365, then reinstall and reauthorize it. I think the deauthorization is accomplished with a simple uninstall, but you can check with Microsoft on that.

    Do you have a URL for a Microsoft apps forum? I searched but didn't find anything that seemed to fit.

    I trashed the icon for 16.24 from the doc and moved the icon for 16.28 to the doc.

    When I click on the icon, it opens 16.28, which is outside the Office folder.

    I left 16.24 in the Office folder.

    When I open an older Word doc created before 16.28, it opens in 16.28.

    So the only remaining wrinkle is 16.28 is not in the Office folder, which is a very minor problem.
