Disable all add ins from word option

Microsoft Word, or MS word in short, is quite a common program used by a sizeable population of people ranging from high flying businessmen to college going students for various day to day purposes. From preparing research paper for students and annual budgets and other important documents, MS word is something that has become part of everyone’s life.

However, as much as it is popular, it is an equally vulnerable program and usually creates a lot of problems for its users and many of them find it really difficult to crawl out of these hurdles and start using MS Word normally. You can praise God Almighty if you are a believer or pay homage to Science if you are an atheist for the various online support platforms available that provide a number of Microsoft Word help tips to solve the various issues.

So here are a few tips to help you solve some of the Word problems that you might encounter.

Microsoft Word problems

Use windows repair option to troubleshoot word

  • If your word simply stopped working, try repairing it using the change and repair option. To do this, navigate to the Start menu and click on Control Panel and then choose Programs and Features. Click on the Microsoft Office and choose Repair option. Reboot your system once repair is complete.
  • If, the Add –ins is what is creating the problem, you can disable it by typing in the code “windord.exe/a” in the run option from the Start menu. After this, choose the Word options and click on Add- Ins and choose the Disable all add –ins option.
  • Getting hold of the latest office update patch can help you solve most word issues to an extent. You can download these patches from Microsoft’s official website.
  • Another option that might prove helpful is to delete the data registry key of Microsoft Word, and rebuild portions of option information that it uses. You can navigate to the system registry and delete those registry entries that are used by the version of Microsoft Office that you use.
  • Sometimes, a recently updated software or a recently installed program might cause troubles to your MS Word application. If that is the case, figure out the program that you have installed most recently or try to undo the software update and see if that fixes the issue.

If all the above measures turned out to be of no help, your last and final option is to uninstall and re install the office suit. This will definitely solve the issue, but it will also remove all the custom settings that you had made to the office programs and you will have to customize them all over again.
