  2. Word and Excel documents are slow to open in Windows 10

    Have the same problem, here are my conditions:

    - Windows 10 Professional x64.

    - Office 2007 Ultimate.

    - Opening Word and Excel documents is slow when Word/Excel not currently open/running.

    - Opening the Word/Excel document with Word/Excel already open is fast/normal.

    Solution is the same as reported:

    1) Disable Cortana.

    2) Restart Windows.

    Step 2 is very important.

  3. FIles in Word, Excel and other programmes will not open from the explorer

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and thanks for providing us an opportunity to assist you.

    Please follow the steps.

    Step 1:

    Lets try to disable the DDE option following these steps:

    • Click the File tab, and then click
      Options.
    • Click Advanced, and then click to clear the
      Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) check box in the
      General area.
    Click OK.

    Step 2:

    If the issue persists, uncheck the compatibility options by doing the following:

    Right click on Excel (.exe) Properties > Compatibility > uncheck all the boxes

    To access Excel (.exe), open the following location:

    Windows 8 32bit: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

    Windows 8 64bit: C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

    For reference:

    Word and Excel documents are slow to open in Windows 10


    in my case, I don't need to restart windows. Closing cortana completely will make opening word and excel files fast like usual.
