Microsoft used to provide somewhat detailed information on their windows updates, but not this time.  Does anyone know what these updates do?


The information they provide is the same and very generic for the updates below. I believe they no longer provide detailed updates. I don't know why: 


This article describes update xxxxxx for Microsoft Office 2013 and Office Home and Student 2013 RT that was released on December 10, 2013. The download links for this update are also included here.

This update provides the latest fixes for Office 2013. It also includes stability and performance improvements.


1. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2826004) 64-Bit Edition
2. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2827227) 64-Bit Edition
3. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2837626) 64-Bit Edition
4. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2837637) 64-Bit Edition
5. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2837638) 64-Bit Edition
6. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2837655) 64-Bit Edition
7. Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2850066) 64-Bit Edition

Yes there is.  If you go to http://www.support.microsoft.com and put in kb and the numbers (ie kb2826004) in the search box, it will return a result what the update is.  When you click on the update it gives you the choice to go to support.microsoft.com, to give you more information on a particular update.  It has been that way for a very long time.  That you have been able to go to support.microsoft.com to look at what an update is, before allowing it to be installed.
