Office 2013 – Unresponsive, Slow, Typing Slow
Recently I have seen quite a few issues with Office 2013 running very slowly and not being responsive.
A client had it so bad that you could type into a Word document and the text would lag about 1 minute behind. (I am not talking about the smooth type feature in 2013 either!)
Office 15 has built in hardware graphics acceleration which can cause issues when running on a slow machine.
To turn this office open any office product (Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc) Click File -> Options -> Advanced -> Scroll down to the “Display” section -> Uncheck “Disable hardware graphics acceleration” and restart office.
This should hopefully resolve the issue with Office 2013 being slow when compared with other software.
