    This has only happens using the new updated MS Edge. The old Edge never did this. FF and Iridium browser work fine. Missing sections of letters. Anyone else have this happen? It only happens occasionally.

    MS Word Error


    Looking back at your first post I see that Word suggested you check your environment variables.

    Right click on the Start Button and select System. Then select Advanced system settings from the left side items. Then select the Environment variables button at the bottom.

    You should see something like this:

    If %USERPROFILE% is missing or it refers to your old username this could be the problem.

    You can check if %USERPROFILE% is correct by typing it into the search box and seeing if it comes up with the right folder for your new username.

    Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
