  1. Word document doesn't open directly in Windows 10


    Hello:

    Recently, after Windows 10's latest upgrade, I haven't been able to open word documents directly. What I get when I click onto a file is a blank word screen. I now have to go through word itself, find the file and open it up. How can I get Windows 10 to open files anywhere as it had before? Is there a way to get Windows 10 to open my document files directly again? If this is, in fact, an update problem, how can I delete the update. I've tried everything I can think of. Help!

    ----

    :)

  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.
