  • Question

  • I have Windows 10 and have not had any problems with Word 2013.  Until tonight.  I can't get Word to open at all no matter what I do.  Everything else from office opens and works great.  What can I do to fix this?

  • Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Start > Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

  • Have you ever made any changes to your system recently?

    Try to start Word in safe mode, and see if that works. This will help to determine whether the issue was caused by any third party add-ins:

    Press Win + R and type "winword.exe /safe" in the blank box, then press Enter.
