    Office (power point) runs VERY slow...

    Hi Forum,
    I hope this is the right place. My office (mainly power point) run VERY slow.
    When copy-paste simple icon- i can wait about 15-20 sec

    Before uninstalling/installing office. Any idea what could be the problem and how to solve it?

    Hi SwissExcel

    Solutions all from the web except last. You may have already tried.

    Run Disk Cleanup, File Explorer => Right click on C:, left Click Properties. General tab has Disk Cleanup. You're after Temporary files. You decide whether other types of files should be cleaned up.

    Next within Powerpoint
    File => Options =>Advance => Display then disable Hardware graphics acceleration.

    Windows Key + R, sysdm.cpl, Advance tab, inside Performance box click Settings, deselect "Animate Controls and Elements in Window"

    While not specifically related I would take the opportunity to completely shutdown windows by holding down shift key and clicking shutdown. On next boot windows starts fresh. You can research process on Google before trying.

    Post back should one fix, it adds to the book of answers.
