        RE: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2016.

        In the last few weeks, about every 10th time I open an Excel 2016 spreadsheet,  I see a banner ad just below the tool bar that says (see also attachment):

        “EXPERIENCE MICROSOFT 365 Keep your files safe, secure, and accessible with 1 TB clout storage. Try Microsoft 365  Start free trial”

        There is an X to the far right to remove the annoying ad, but it will return. 🙁

        If I wanted Microsoft (or Office) 365, I would have bought that instead of Office Home & Business 2016. And Office is not free! It is not cheap. I didn’t “pay” a pretty penny to get ads in my programs. 🙁

        How do I permanently prevent my Office products from displaying these ads?
