  • Hi,

    Did this issue only appear in Excel files? How about Word or other Office programs?

    First I suggest you check if it works fine in safe mode, Press Win + R, type " excel /safe" in the blank box, press Enter. If it works fine in safe mode, please check the add-ins in your Excel and disable them.

    Please install the latest updates for you Office programs.

    There is also an experience for sharing:

    When you go to Share an Excel or Word document as an email attachment, it doesn't send it out right away. It goes into a queue, and when you send more than one item to that queue it can cause the program to crash. Here's the solution:

    After hitting Send when you are Sharing a file as an attachment, you need to open Outlook and hit Send/Receive to clear the queue. If you do this each time you will not get the Excel or Word crashes.

    You can also go to File-Options- Advanced- make sure uncheck "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" for Excel and Outlook.

    Please try these methods and check the result, any updates please let me know and I'm glad to help you.
