  • Hi,

    Did the issue happen when you opened the Word application? Or open a specific Word document?

    Please install all the latest updates for your Office application and Windows. Also confirm if other Office application is loading slowly. If the issue persists, please start Word in safe mode to have a try:

    Press Win + R, type winword /safe, press Enter.

    Disable any third-party add-ins for Word application and restart Word in normal mode.
