2016 typing lag

MarshaTemirian asked on
I have Windows 7 - because of an older laptop (3 years) Windows 10 gave me headaches.  When I reinstalled 2013 -- I got 2016 -- and now I have typing lag in 2016.  I have disabled Smooth Typing but to no avail -- still lags.  When will Microsoft fix this, and why did I have 2016 installed when I asked for 2013 which has no problems with my laptop!  Can anyone give me a possible solution?

About the typing lag:

Click Start button.

Type regedit in the search box.

Click Regedit.exe in the search results.

If you get a UAC prompt, allow Regedit to run.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common.

Right-click Common and select New > Key from the context menu.

Name the new key Graphics.

Right-click Graphics and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value form the context menu.

Name the new value DisableAnimations.

Double-click DisableAnimations and enter the value 1, then click OK.

Kind regards, HansV
