Can't type with keyboard in microsoft Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using the Microsoft office for Mac. Over the last few weeks I have a problem that pops up every couple of days where I can type into my word document using my keyboard. I can use the mouse to click, cut and paste copy and select the menu options but not the keyboard. I can restart and it works fine again. I read on several user blogs that by turning the projects gallery off that pops up when you start the program its solves the problem. That did work for a while but now its up to its old tricks again

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.
