Next Version after HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\

Michael Burch 20 Reputation points

Currently I'm checking for Office versions 14.0, 15.0 and 16.0. I want to prepare for the next version, but I don't know what it will be. For example: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office*16.0*\Excel\Options

Will it be 19.0 or 21.0 or what? I have searched many places but am unable to find the details.

Thank you in advance,

    There is no official documentation to explain the future trend, as a long-term and ongoing product, Office 365 is version 16.0 and Office 365 will always be the latest Office product in terms of feature updates, unless a completely disruptive Office 365 product appears.

    Hope the information will help.
