  2. Word & Printer Difficulties

    Hi JoMartin1,

    Please follow these steps to help you resolve your concern:

    Troubleshoot the Word app.

    1. Open the Word app in safe mode. Starting Word in safe mode can allow you to safely use it when it has encountered certain problems. Press Windows key + R and type this command: word /safe, and click OK.
    2. Follow the steps on the Repair an Office application article. It can automatically repair errors in
      Word files.
    3. Update the Word app. Go to File > Account > Update Options > Update Now. Installing any important recommendation and optimal updates can often correct problems by replacing out-of-date files and fixing vulnerabilities.
    4. Uninstall and reinstall the app. You may refer to this
      link
      .

    Troubleshoot the printer.

    1. Run the Printer troubleshooter. Open settings> Troubleshoot> Printer> Run the troubleshooter> Restart the device.
    2. Update the printer driver. Select Device Manager. Expand Printers,
      find your printer in the list, right-click (or press and hold) it, then select Update Driver.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
