    Word/Excel opening on startup, odd?


    When I use Word or Excel one day, and when I've finished on my pc for the day and shut down. The next day when I switch the PC on, a blank Word or Excel sheet (whichever I used last the day before) will open on up on my screen on startup without me touching anything. Is this not odd behaviour, or is it from a setting I need to adjust?

    I'm on 10 Pro October update, Office 365 on default settings.

    :)

  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.

    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.

    Excel/Word doc opens after Windows 10 startup

    Starting mid to late February 2018 when I log into my pc running Windows 10, a blank Excel spreadsheet opens. Occasionally it will be 2 Excel spreadsheets and less often also a blank Word document. There's nothing in any startup folder or xlstart folder.
    Dell recommended reinstalling Windows 10. Surely there's a MS fix for this?
